A traditional meal of mattaq (whale skin), pitsiq (dried fish), and nikku (dried meat, in this case beluga), accompanied by soy sauce and seasoning salt. While some Inuit families eat these foods regularly, others are only able to have some country foods, particularly beluga, a couple times a year.
