Inscription: "These people have an iglu because they are real Inuit. Their knife has a bone handle, and the wife has an ulu that is not metal. The husband's knife is not metal but uluksana [stone]... They used to be very poor, real Inuit of long ago... That is what they used to do. But now they do not do that anymore. We are using another way of life today.”
