A film by Leonard Kamerling, Sarah Elder,
Lincoln Pelaasi is an elder from the village of Gambell, St. Lawrence Island. He tells a mythical story about a man who goes out in search of a reindeer thief. The ensuing encounter becomes a test of supernatural powers and human/animal transformation. Pelaasi’s story is called an ungipaghaq, a tale that has been passed down unchanged through generations and is believed to be based on truth. Like many St. Lawrence Island legends, this story is set in Siberia.
