James Pokiak is proud to be Inuvialuit. The Inuvialuit, or "real people," are the most westerly Canadian Inuit. James lives in Tuktoyaktuk, NT, a community above the Arctic Circle, on the shore of the Arctic Ocean. Even though he lives in town now, James grew up on the land, learning the traditional values and survival skills of his people.
In this fifth book in the The Land is Our Storybook series, James and his daughter, Rebecca, go on a trip to harvest a beluga whale. Harvesting and processing belugas with his family is important to James. It is an integral part of what it means to be Inuvialuit. Join James and his family and learn about how the beluga whale is interlinked with Inuvialuit culture and history.
