Polar Bear

The oldest polar bear at the gathering calls to the sun that today they celebrate The Longest Day, and demand it start slowing the days down, and let the ice return. All the bears fall silent and stand up to stretch to the sky, believing they are pushing the sun away.

Grizzly Bear

The grizzlies meet for a day of peace in which they catch salmon in rivers near and at the grizzly section of the lake. If the salmon aren't coming, a bear must swim to Paw Print Island and live there for a day, impressing Arcturus and making him send back the salmon.

Black Bear

The black bears celebrate The Longest Day by presenting berries and standing on their hind paws and talking to the sun.


All bears stay on their side of the lake. This was broken by Lusa, Miki, Salik, Manik, Iqaluk, Taqqiq, Ujurak and Toklo.
