July 2012- Kangiqsualujjuaq, Nunavik, Qc, Canada. Jean Guy Unatweenuk wait for his family to return from a fishing trip. As many of the community families are gone mussels and clams picking, more than 60 Km away out on the bay, those that had to stay in the village are waiting for their return. Soon they gather at the end of the dirt road and scrutinize the horizon, expecting to see the boats. This activity is done massively once a year in July as the tides are retiring enough to give them access to that protein suplement. Even all the Coop workers, the local grocery, are gone since thursday, with the rest of the village. On that week-end, everything stops and the old ways resurface as the families join and leave the village.
