Description

The way one perceives the world, and one's environment, is in large part shaped by one's culture. In many societies, dreams and visions are considered the link between the visible and the invisible universe. This is often the case in cultures, such as the Inuit, that have a shamanistic tradition. Written accounts of dreams in traditional Inuit society are uncommon. In this book, three elders? George Agiaq Kappianaq, Felix Pisuk, and Salome Ka&&ak Qalasiq'share their thoughts and experiences relating to the life cycle, dreaming, and dream interpretation.
This is book three in the Inuit Perspectives on the 20th Century series. This series focuses on the transfer of Inuit knowledge from elders to the younger generation. The traditional knowledge of Inuit societies is rapidly eroding as elders who experienced that culture are no longer there. This series records the elders? knowledge and ideas with care, paying attention to their richness and variation.
