The Orphan and the Polar Bear

In the world of Inuit traditional stories, animals and humans are not such different creatures. Animals can speak to, understand, and form relationships with humans. In The Orphan and the Polar Bear, an orphaned boy who is abandoned on the sea ice by a group of cruel hunters is discovered and adopted by a polar bear elder. While living in the polar bear’s village, the orphan learns many lessons about survival, most importantly, he learns something about himself and his own place in the world.

Note: On Sunday Fun Day, both the Orphan and the Polar Bear and Traditional Healing will play in the Indigenous Spotlight program, starting at 1:00 PM, instead of the Animation Investigation program.
