Abstract:

"Historical Dictionary of the Inuit describes how the Inuit - as a single people, citizens of separate nations, and residents of individual communities - deal with education, language rights, self-government and self-determination, the militarization of their lands and their lives, climate change and pollution, and globalization." "More than 450 dictionary entries cover influential educators, writers, environmentalists, politicians, and the many volunteer associations and governmental agencies that have played a role in Inuit history. The introductory essay, chronology, maps, and well-developed bibliography make this an ideal reference for the researcher or student."--Jacket.
