Abstract:

The concept of turning nothing into something or making something into something extraordinary is exactly what Inuit have done for centuries for survival, function and purpose. Using materials from nature, reusing unutilized materials and recycling good materials to creating something useful is a way of life for many in the north. Inuit make things from by-products of hunted animals all the time such as tools, clothing, household items, and even devises for transportation. In this series we see the incredible things made traditionally made by Inuit and how we make and use our creations today. For centuries the fish spear known to Inuit as the Kakivak has been in existence. It has assisted Inuit in spearing fish from rivers. This spear would have been made mostly from bone and occasionally driftwood for the long shaft; the point would have been sharper, at times made of rock, but mostly bone. These days there is plenty of wood around, and the point could be made from steel, brass or other hard elements. In this episode we will watch Solomon Awa, a hunter from Iqaluit, originally from Pond Inlet demonstrate the making of a modern Kakivak.
