Notes from DaVic Gallery:    Wonderful epic story of courage and survival.  It was common practice that Inuit hunters would hunt caribou on their migration path when crossing river. This made them easier target to catch while on the water.  However, the fight for life or death was always on the balance for a kayak is not difficult to tumble over and the hunter could die in the cold waters.  Here we see a successful hunter offloading his caribou on the shore of a river
