Arctic Son

Episode Info

"Arctic Son" follows a young Native American from Washington state who leaves his party ways behind when he moves to Old Crow, a small "dry" village 80 miles north of the Arctic Circle, to live with his father, whom he barely knows. His father imparts the Gwitchin people's ways to his son, teaching him to fish, hunt and skin rabbits, but the culture shock at first leaves the younger man frustrated. Over time, however, he comes to see the value in the old ways and bonds with his father.
