Each society lives on through its children. Children have to responsible adults, who can take care of themselves as well as their relatives. In this book, Inuit childrearing practices are described by two elders?Naqi Ekho and Uqsuralik Ottokie?from the South Baffin Island region.
Childrearing practices are rapidly changing in the communities of Nunavut yet many features of traditional childrearing can still be observed, such as women carrying their babies on the amauti. Topics in this book range from pregnancy to naming and nutrition to games.
