Nitsiit are used by hunters to hook seals, beluga and other marine animals out of the water during harvesting. Paatsaali's shop class teachers often get students to make traditional tools including harpoons, qamutiks, fishnets, kakivaks and ulus. Students also learn small engine repair on snowmobiles and all-terrain vehicles. (PHOTO COURTESY PAATSAALI SCHOOL)
