“In February 1973 Inuit Tapirisat of Canada proposed to the Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs that research be undertaken to produce a comprehensive and verifiable record of Inuit land use and occupancy in the Northwest Territories of Canada. The record so obtained would delimit the present and past use and occupation of the land and marine environment and would categorize the uses which any particular area served. In view of the continuing role which land plays in defining the cultural and ecologic circumstances of Inuit society, the research was also to provide an explicit statement – by the Inuit – of their perception of the man-land relationship. The results of this research are published in three volumes”–Preface, p. 19. This is Volume One; Volume Three also available. Discount will be applied if ordering both volumes. 002706 $175
