Maïna

Summary

In the aftermath of a bloody confrontation between her band, the Innu tribe, and the Inuits, the “men from the land of ice,” Maïna, daughter of Grand Chief Mishte-Napeu, finds herself on a mission that will change the course of her life. In order to fulfill a promise to her friend Matsii as she lay on her deathbed, Maïna has to follow the trail of her enemies to retrieve Nipki, Matsii’s 11 year old son who has been captured by the Inuits. She is taken captive herself by Natak, the Inuit clan’s leader and forced to travel with them to the Land of Ice.
