The Eskimo: Fight for Life

The Eskimo: Fight for Life follows an authentic record of the life of the Netsilik Inuit of the Pelly Bay region of the Canadian Arctic during their last migratory camp.

It shows the old Inuit culture, the communal life of the seal hunters and their families, and their complete adaptation to their environment.

This film was adapted from the Netsilik Eskimos series and produced, with commentary, from footage by arctic anthropologists.

It was showcased by NFB on public television in 1970 and directed by Robert M. Young.
