What People are Saying About This

David G. Anderson

This edited collection of essays is based on long-term fieldwork which documents the unique knowledge practices of Inuit in Canada and Greenland and Northern Sami. The authors examine the problems that Inuit and Northern Sami face when trying to pass on aspects of their culture to the younger generation.

Kirsten Thisted

"Traditions, Traps and Trends gives a profound insight into traditional knowledge and what it means to the scholars promoting it. The book will be a most welcome reader within this field."
