Overview

Damas (anthropology, McMaster University) finds the relationships between the Inuit nation and their government were more complex than previously thought. Rather than coercing Inuits into abandoning their camps scattered across the Arctic, the Canadian government served them in situ for some time, despite the logistical difficulties. Damas maintains that although there were some instances of government coercion, the majority of Inuits voluntarily sought the better housing, health care, education and welfare services available in larger settlements.
