day a young Yupik boy named Sasuke went into the tundra with a few
harpoons to hunt. Sasuke came from a starving Yupik village about 80
miles away in the Brooks Range.
About ten miles into the tundra Sasuke spotted a male caribou.
Sasuke threw a harpoon but he forgot to aim and missed! The caribou
charged at Sasuke and scared him badly. Then the caribou reeled up and
broke one of Sasuke's legs. Sasuke cried out in pain. He threw another
harpoon in rage, which hit the caribou in the neck, killing it.
Limping back to the village with the caribou, Sasuke returned and was honored as a great hunter.
