In this new collection, book 4 of Kenn Harper’s Arctic writings series, Harper shares tales of Inuit and Christian beliefs and how these came to coexist in the 19th and 20th centuries. During this period, Anglican and Catholic missionaries came to the North to share their religions with the Inuit, often with unexpected and sometimes tragic results. This collection includes stories of shamans and priests, hymnsand ajaja songs, and sealskin churches, drawing on first-hand accounts to show how Christianity changed life in the North. This volume also includes dozens of rare, historical photographs.
