Description

Canadian Aboriginal Art And Culture: Inuit is one of the titles in Smartbook Media’s series, Canadian Aboriginal Art and Culture, published in 2019. Each title in this series provides information about First Nations, Inuit or Metis and is designed for grades five and six. Authors Erinn Banting and John Willis explain how the Inuit ancestors called Thule arrived in Canada’s far north. The book contains 13 short chapters covering the following topics: Inuit, their homes, communities, clothing, and food. This is followed by tools, weapons and defense. Inuit religion, ceremonies, and celebrations leads into music and dance, language and storytelling, art and bone carving. The final chapters include a timeline from 9000-4000BC-present and approaches for studying Inuit past from artifacts. There is a quiz with 10 questions, keywords, and an index. Each chapter in the 32-page book consists of photographs and text. Colour photographs assist students in understanding the Inuit as contemporary members of today’s society. The unique feature of this series is the accessible website (Lightbox) dedicated to each title including embedded videos, slideshow, child-safe weblinks, and the book’s complete text in audio. Recommended.
