My name is Curtis Konek. I am an Inuk from Arviat, Nunavut and I am also in the Canadian Rangers.

This video clip is for people who are going to experience the Arctic for the first time. This is a good way to show how Inuit survived and continue to survive in the Arctic for so many years. I want to share Inuit knowledge and survival skills, and show people that traditional Inuit clothing is very reliable and important to Inuit.

Special thanks to the Nunavut Research Institute, Nunavut Arctic College, and Jamie Bell!

    Urban Man raises some good points. However I would not completely count out the crossbow as far as a SHTF tool. I believe with much practice a crossbow may be a means of obtaining meat when one doesn’t want to draw undue attention. The supply of ammunition is theoretically limitless since one can reuse the arrows.
