(aka Shadow of the Wolf)


("The Great White North")

I've never seen that old man

counter up anything. Not once!

He has the power!

I can feel it!

All you feel is bad

alcohol in worst times.

Kroomak is nothing

but an old trickster,..

...but at least is our trickster.

Old Kroomak has been

rising the spirits...

...of his animal helpers.

It's not Kroomaks spirits

I'm worried about,..'s that damn son of his.


You're afraid of him?

Just worried.

Your people are starving.

The Spirits of the Land,

they haven't been very kind.

Some of the elderly had to die.

Your people have nothing to trade.

Caribou, wolf, fox...

They will come back.

I talked with spirits.

Even so, the shaman must know that some

people will not trade with me.

Agaguk is leading young men

against me.

Only I lead this camp!

- Hey!

I been fair with you!

More than fair!

I giving you goods;

liquor, tobacco...

... but you can not pay for it!

Very funny!

There is no place in this camp

for your son and me!

It is better to stay

with your friends.

You will have skins.

I promise.

Look at my son!

I accept the gift of the skin!

I will not give you the skin!

Not as long as the white man

is still with the people!

This is our land!

We should not have the white man

here to tell us what to do!

How would you do than?

I would not laugh

and play games with Brown!

I would not give him food,

I would not trade with him!

Nobody...tells me what to do!

The white man is here

because I want that!

I do not!

To give thanks to the spirits,..

...and to protect us

from the anger of my son,..

...I give my share of the meat

to the people!

Nice skin.

Very nice.


You want liquor for your feast?

What do you want?

Bear skin.

You can have it.

Two bottles.


There will be no debt

between us any more.


Fight. Fight!


See you later...

Don't get us into trouble.


- No.

Come on, drink!

No. No!

- Drink it!



You're drunk!

I have the right to choose her!

You have to follow

the rules of the camp!

I'll go and not come back

until the rules have changed!

You're not the son of your people!

You may never return.

I will take Igiyook with me.


She is mine!

I want my skin!

You don't want liquor?

- The great hunter like you?

- I will not drink.

I want my skin!

You don't owe the skin,

I own it.

Your father trade it to me.


...not good.

"Not good" is better than

what you deserve.

You are lucky to get that much.

And now get out of here

before I change my mind.

I am one hair away from

sending you to hell.



You turn your back on people,..

...the spirit of the White Wolf

will hunt you down!

I did not know that I was yours.

You are.

I'm glad.

Korok, give it to me.

You're mine.

I am yours...

It is good to live alone.

One day we'll go

back to the people.

Father wanted me.

The son is stronger than the father!

You have not told me what

happened with Brown.

A woman does not ask questions!

- They are not company men?

- No, they are smugglers.

I been setting for them.

Follow me.

Stop in the name of the law!

Right there!

I coming down!

Hold it!

You're my witness, Mac.

I told them to stop.

It's you...Big Tooth.

Stupid son of the b*tch.

Where was he headed?

I don't know.

He had a partner,

Brown was his name...

Was he taking liquor to him?

- Nope.

- He said he was dead.

- Who, Brown?

- He said that he was killed by Inuit.


Where abouts?

I do not know.

Oh, God...



Will you stay with us?


No, I must take seal back

to the camp tonight.

It is good to hunt together.

Young men ask,..

...will you come back?

- It is better to live alone.

Two people is not good!

The Inuit must live together!



Whale, hunter with harpoon...


...This morning I...

Old woman say...

...the baby does not like

what I eat.



In here.

It will be a boy.

If it is a girl?

It must be a boy!

I wish it, for your sake!

- A girl would be useless!

- Oh, am I useless?

You talk too loud.

I'll call my son Tayarak.

Tayarak, you see?

Arctic hare comes by, ..

...he runs.

Oh,..the three toes of the wolverine.

The track of the wolverine...

...and the hare

meet here.

This is the end of the Arctic hare.

My son will be a great hunter!

Something troubles you?

It is nothing...

It is something.

I am afraid of Agaguks anger...

...when he is with white men.

When Kanaluk was hungry,..

...she sent her children

in all directions.

They became Indian,..

...Inuit and White men.

We all have the same Mother.


I have to tell you

that the price of furs... way down this year.

Way down,..way down.

Ok, lets have a look...

Here, you take a stick of candy.

Are you the only Eskimo

that doesn't like candy?




Is this not good?

That's . Reject!

No, this is good!

- It is good!

- Ah, take them all away!

I don't argue.

Go somewhere else!

- How you doing, Mac?

- Fine, just fine.


All right. What do you want

for all this lot?

Rifle, 20 box of shelves,

lamp with kerosene,..

Salt. Full bag.

Hey, hold it, hold it.

Half of bag, okay?

No more.

And that would be all.

Some beans and cotton cloth

for my woman.


...for my son.

I wouldn't be doing you a favor,

you know.

Take what you need for hunt,
