Description: For centuries the fish spear known to Inuit as the Kakivak has been in existence. It has assisted Inuit in spearing fish from rivers. This spear would have been made mostly from bone and occasionally driftwood for the long shaft; the point would have been sharper, at times made of rock, but mostly bone. These days there is plenty of wood around, and the point could be made from steel, brass or other hard elements. In this episode we will watch Solomon Awa, a hunter from Iqaluit, originally from Pond Inlet demonstrate the making of a modern Kakivak.

Description: Le fondateur de SSi Canada, Jeff Philipp, s'est joint à l'expédition Canada C3 à la neuvième étape, de Pond Inlet, au Nunavut, à Cambridge Bay, en Colombie-Britannique. Canada C3 était un voyage épique de 150 jours de Toronto, en Ontario, jusqu'à Victoria, en Colombie-Britannique, via le passage du Nord-Ouest pour célébrer le 150e anniversaire du Canada en explorant la diversité des cultures, de l'environnement et des communautés tout en voyageant d'un océan à l'autre. Il s'agit d'un projet de communication sans précédent, rejoignant des millions de Canadiens via Internet avec des mises à jour quotidiennes en direct, des vidéos en continu, des photos et des entrevues. Sans l'innovation, l'expertise technique et la contribution de la capacité satellitaire de SSi Canada, ce projet n'aurait pas été possible.
