  • IRIQTAQ HAILSTONE: We grew up following our parents.

  • My parents always took us along with them.

  • So I have that mentality in my head

  • that if I can't take my kid then don't go.

  • [peaceful music]

  • CHIP HAILSTONE: He's a handsome little boy.

  • So cute.

  • CHIP HAILSTONE: Wow, you got green eyes, kid.

  • [inaudible] Hailstone.

  • [cold music]

  • To provide her niece and nephew with furs to keep warm

  • through winter, [inaudible] will head out

  • Wait, where?

  • Over [inaudible]

  • Wade just turned three years old,

  • so you could only keep his attention for so long.

  • He's a very active child.

  • I thought [inaudible] your head, Mom.

  • When we find something he's interested in,

  • it's entertaining and fun to watch

  • him because he's so involved.

  • There you go.

  • Some more.

  • Oh, almost.

  • I remember being a little kid and following my dad

  • out, checking traps and snares.

  • You know, even though he's at a young age,

  • just watching and listening to you, just being around you,

  • they pick up and learn a lot.

  • You explained things the best you can, and show

  • him what's safe and what isn't.

  • OK, wait, I think we got enough Willows.

  • [grunts]

  • You're going to pile them up for me?

  • Yeah.

  • That way they're learning how to provide

  • and learning the cycle of life and how things are done,

  • and where food comes from.

  • Thank you.

  • OK, right there is fine.

  • You could look in the backpack and grab

  • the snare wire, please--

  • and the tool that's in there with it.

  • Thank you.

  • Oh.

  • I taught my son something, and it just--

  • it feels good.

  • It feels good to be able to be that active

  • and be able to do such things up here,

  • and teach my son that nothing is ever too hard if you

  • just set your mind to it.

  • We'll come back tomorrow and check our snares, OK?
