[An archivist wrote the above description. Below, we have transcribed the original caption supplied by the film’s creator, Fred North. We have redacted a derogatory term used to refer to Indigenous women. North misspelled this term, and in a previous description, an archivist added in the correct spelling to both the title and the scope and content. We have redacted both. If you have feedback or questions, or would like to see the original non-redacted description, please contact the NWT Archives.]
