After his parents are brutally murdered, Ahiahia is raised by his grandmother in a camp surrounded by enemies. His grandmother knows that eventually the camp will turn on Ahiahia, just as it did his parents, so she chants a protection chant over the clothing that she lovingly sews for him, over the amulet and necklace she gives him, even over the dog that is his companion. When he is attacked, Ahiahia must use his agility, hunting skills, and the protection imparted by his grandmother to stay alive.

Par une nuit sans nuages, une renarde tombe sur Terre et croise une famille d’humains. Au fil des saisons, elle suit les déplacements de la famille de campement en campement. Sa fascination pour les humains ne cesse de croître, mais elle se fait plus forte encore pour Irniq, le plus vieux des fils. En âge de chasser pour subvenir à ses besoins, Irniq part de son côté. Un jour, en entrant dans sa tente, il s’étonne de trouver la lampe allumée, un thé chaud qui l’attend et une femme qui prétend être sa compagne. Fatigué de vivre seul, Irniq l’accueille, mais, bientôt, il ne peut s’empêcher de se poser des questions.

Je vais vous parler un peu de mon hibou. En vérité, ce n'était pas «mon» hibou. Je ne crois pas qu'une personne puisse posséder un animal. Ou une partie de la terre. Ou quoi que ce soit, en fait.

Hockey is a relatively new sport in Canada's North. It wasn't until 2003 that Jordin Kudluk "Thunder" Tootoo became the first Inuk to play in an NHL game. Although hockey is a rough sport to begin with, Jordin Tootoo is known for having to "fight his way through." Jordin has had more than his fair share of fights both on and off the ice. He's had to overcome the social problems that are associated with the North, fight his way through the discrimination and culture shock he encountered after leaving Rankin Inlet and moving to Alberta to play in the Juniors, and see his way through the grief of losing his NHL bound older brother and hero, Terence Tootoo, to suicide in 2002. This new, updated biography explores the struggles and accomplishments of the most recognized role model for young Aboriginal and Inuit people today.

The sea animals have disappeared, and people are starving. An old couple, once great shamans, are asked to journey to the Mother of the Sea to find out what happened to the animals. But the journey is dangerous and the old woman does not know if she will be able to please the Mother of the Sea and convince her to free the animals the people of her community so desperately need. The Mother of the Sea is an important character in Inuit traditional stories shared across the circumpolar region. Known by many names across various regions of the Arctic, the Mother of the Sea is a powerful woman who can withhold the animals humans need to survive if she is displeased by human behaviour. Only a shaman is able to appease the Mother of the Sea and convince her to release the animals that the hunters so desperately need. This tale shares the specific traditional story of the Mother of the Sea told and retold in Greenland for generations.
