Ulayok Kaviok is one of the last of a generation of Inuit, born and bred on the land, but her skills in making the sealskin boots called kamik may soon be lost in the cultural transformation overtaking her community. Ulayok and her family, like many Inuit today, strive to balance two very different worlds. Kamik offers a glimpse of those worlds and the thread one woman weaves between them.
