t is 4500 years ago. We are in northernmost Canada and Greenland. Following a vendetta a small group of people are leaving their familiar world behind to migrate into unknown areas in the East. But the sea ice is brittle and the hunting unsuccessful so they do not make it. Only the boy Nanu and a few others survive. Nanu cannot forget the new hunting grounds, and when he grows up and becomes a big hunter, he and his family once more travel to the East - and into Greenland! Here they explore the northernmost parts of the world, they hunt musk ox and settle down. The circle is complete when Nanu and his group of Independence hunters, who migrated to the northward of Greenland, meet the first people, who went southward of the country, the Saqqaq people.
The First Steps is based on a close collaboration between the Greenlandic artist Nuka K. Godtfredsen and a team of archaeologists from SILA - the Greenlandic Research Centre at the National Museum of Denmark.
