Okpiks Dream - 1

During the Dog Slaughter in the early 1960s, 11-year-old Harry thought his dream of becoming a dog musher was destroyed. Twelve years he suffered a shooting accident which was followed by three years of intense hospitalisation and estrangement from his community. He made the life changing decision to amputate his leg – one he believed would forever rob him of his hopes of becoming a true Inuk. We follow Harry as he recounts the momentous events of his life and prepares with his husky dogs for the Ivakkak – a gruelling 600 km Inuit dog sled race across the Canadian Arctic.
