Description

Settlement, Subsistence, and Change Among the Labrador Inuit: The Nunatsiavummiut Experience explores how these boundaries - around land, around people, and around the right to self-govern - reflect the complex history of the region, of Labrador Inuit identity, and the role of migration and settlement patterns in regional politics. Comprised of twelve essays, the book examines the way of life and cultural survival of this unique Indigenous population, including: household structure, social economy of wild food production, forced relocations and land claims, subsistence and settlement patterns, and contemporary issues around climate change, urban planning, and self-government.
