Description

Through the power of human memory and story—telling language, you are invited to step back in time to absorb the songs, narratives, and mythology of recently passed generations of Inuit as recorded by Father Guy Mary—Rousseli?re. Father Mary came to the Canadian Arctic in 1938 as a missionary priest and fell in love with the Inuit culture. He learned the language and recorded the oral traditions of the people he met from the 1940s to the early 1970s.
This book contains narratives from the Kitikmeot, Kivalliq, and Qikiqtaaluk regions of Nunavut.
