A Boy’s First Igloo

From the wonderful BBC documentary, A Boy Among Polar Bears, this video clip shows the young Inuit building his first igloo.

Watch it on YouTube.

I think I may have enjoyed this part even more:
Following his father’s footsteps – A Boy Among Polar Bears

“The hunters must journey far out over the frozen sea, leave the modern world behind, travel back in time, to experience the world of the ancestors. This is when our traditions come alive.

Inuit children learn by watching and helping their parents, not by being told what to do. That’s the Inuit way.”

More clips from A Boy Among Polar Bears.

Thanks Beverley!
