Post 3 of 4 |    Suppertime. Bring your own knife. Norman prepares some food for us to try at the Pond Inlet community feast. His favourite combination is raw caribou and aged walrus blubber. He slices the pieces precisely and stacks them together. Norman shows his generosity by sharing just a small piece with me. He knows that the aged walrus Рburied for weeks in the summer and then served frozen Рis a very strong flavour for newcomers.

My friends tell me that you can only eat some of this food in wintertime because it warms the body so much. 

Certainly the community hall is full of warmth tonight.
