Tuktu and his Eskimo Dog

A very nice short documentary about the life of a Inuit family with his Eskimo Dog. (14 minutes…)

This short docu-fiction film illustrates how traditionally dogs were used by the Netsilik Inuit, in winter and summer. We see puppies and sled dogs used as pack animals. Eskimo dogs were also used for hunting, being particularly skilful at sniffing out seal blowholes when deep snow covered the winter sea ice.
