"Uqalurait is the most comprehensive compilation of Inuit traditional knowledge to date." TOPIA - Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies "Recuperates and preserves the dwindling knowledge of how the Inuit lived prior to moving into permanent settlements ... profound and remarkably humorous." The Walrus "In Uqalurait, the history of the Inuit is told in their own words. This thorough and comprehensive work is a formidable achievement that will allow their traditional knowledge to be handed down throughout the generations. The book's simple, logical structure enables non-Inuit to gain a solid and insightful understanding of Inuit life, thought, and society. One of the very fine attributes of this work - and of the Inuit who shared their memories - is that it covers all aspects of Inuit life with complete frankness." Ken Coates, dean, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, University of Saskatchewan, and the author of many books on Canada's north and its peoples

Descrizione libro McGill-Queen's University Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Uqalurait: An Oral History of Nunavut, John Bennett, Susan Rowley, "Uqalurait" presents a comprehensive account of Inuit life on land and sea ice, in the area now called Nunavut, before extensive contact with southerners. Drawing on a broad range of oral history sources - from nineteenth-century exploration accounts to contemporary community-based projects - the book uses quotes from over three hundred Inuit elders to provide an 'inside' view of family life, social relations, hunting, the land, shamanism, health, and material culture. For the first time, the reader encounters Inuit culture and traditional knowledge through the voices of people who lived the life being described. Based on a larger research project developed under the guidance of six Inuit from across Nunavut, "Uqalurait" consists of thousands of quotations organised thematically into cohesive chapters. The book describes the seasonal rounds of four different groups, capturing the fact that while Inuit across Nunavut had much in common, there was also much to distinguish them from each other, living as they did in many small groups of people, each with its own territory and identity. Given the recent creation of Nunavut, and the current focus of attention on the Arctic due to climate change, "Uqalurait" is a timely source of insight from a people whose values of sharing and respect for the environment have helped them to live contentedly for centuries at the northern limit of the inhabitable world.
