Description

Quaqtaq: Modernity and Identity in an Inuit Community is a brief historical analysis of the northern Quebec village, Quaqtaq. The author describes the community's changes into a settled village and its organization in the 1990s. Dorais looks at local identity in terms of kinship, religion and language as these endure despite overwhelming intrusions. He concludes by examining the role politics and education play in the ongoing relationship between this Inuit community and the rest of Canada. Louis-Jacques Dorais is Professor of Anthropology, Universite Laval.
