Inuit Worldviews


An Introduction

Edited by Jarich Oosten and Frédéric Laugrand
Nunavut Arctic College 
September 2017

An insightful introduction into the production and transmission of knowledge in Inuit societies through the voices of Inuit elders, this book grew out of the Oral Traditions course, held at the Iqaluit campus of Nunavut Arctic College. The college invited Inuit elders to be interviewed, in Inuktitut, by the students taking the course that year. Inuit Worldviews includes essays by the students, traditional stories, and an instructive glossary.

This is a new and updated edition of Interviewing Inuit Elders Vol. 1: Introduction.
