Traditional Social Organization among the Inuit of Kangiqsujuaq, Nunavik (English version)
This ethnographic reconstruction of the Kangiqsujuarmiut traditional social organization was submitted in 1964 as a Master Thesis in anthropology at University of Montreal. Based on data collected in 1961 and 62, this work describes in an outstanding way the physical, historical and social context of one of the least acculturated groups of that time in Québec-Labrador. This text is indispensable in order to understand Nunavik as a whole. Until now, the text was unavailable in English, and the French version was difficult to acquire; an Inuktitut version is in preparation.
