Inuit camp, trap and hunt to learn about the history of each site and, of course,share a meal of delicious, healthy,
and uniquely Inuit cuisine.

Malaya learns new skills in hunting animals, fishing, gathering seafood, berries and plants used to make
scrumptious, organic and wholesome food made by Inuit for centuries. “We come from a long line of strong
capable Inuit. As I learn to hunt and cook our delicious country foods from our experts, I am reminded of our
ancestors’ resilience, and I hope to continue on this journey of learning in my own personal life. Food is my most
favorite thing on earth, and so I hope you enjoy the show I truly enjoyed shooting. Qujannamiik” Malaya said.
This season Malaya travels to Arviat for some unique Inuksuit surf and turf and visits Naujaat to learn the secret
recipe for a family’s famous 7-hour baked fish. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, be sure to tune in when the
