BeschreibungWhen the sun never sets, life on earth takes strange turns. In Poniktuk, a village on the Beaufort Sea, Simon Umingmak and his 18-year-old nephew Nate square off on the issue of land rights. Meanwhile, the head of the Hunters? Association finds a white woman, the lone survivor of a wilderness canoe trip, nearly dead from hunger and exposure. He brings her to Poniktuk, and while she sleeps, a teenage girl starts a cult around her striped tuque. Sedna, the spirit under the sea, and Aningat, the moon spirit, are disturbed and re-enter the human world at Poniktuk. In one long bright night, spirits and humans collide, with horrific consequences. Lawrence Osgood spent more than 10 years in the Arctic, exploring the rivers and working with the Inuit on land rights and language preservation and producing Inuktitut children's television. The dramas of this accomplished playwright have been produced on CBC Radio and off-Broadway. He has pub-lished stories in Pleiades and Canadian Fiction Magaz
