Description

For many years, Inuit traditions were developed by small nomadic groups and spread over a wide territory. The arrival of whalers and the Hudson's Bay Company stimulated the development of permanent settlements. The old nomadic lifestyle was replaced by a more settled life affecting the knowledge of the land as well as the attitudes towards it. In this book, two elders explain how Inuit used to travel and live on the land.
