Historical Dictionary of the Inuitby Pamela R. Stern
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Since 1977 the Inuit Circumpolar Conference has represented the collective interests of the largest group of northern indigenous people of Russia, Alaska, Greenland, and Canada. Depending on where they lived, the Inuit had different colonial and cultural experiences, and degrees of participation as active citizens in determining their own future. Stern (anthropology, U. of Waterloo, Canada) examines the history of the Inuit, their differences and similarities in history, contact with other cultures, language, perceptions of sovereignty, and attitudes about their own ethnic and cultural identity. The dictionary section includes people, terms, organizations, and projects associated with Inuit culture and history. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
