Eskimo education and the trauma of social change: R42-2/1-1970E-PDF
"The research described herein deals with the acculturation of the Belcher Island, N.W.T. Eskimo with particular attention given to the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development education program affecting them. A review of the period of historical contact reveals that while there are a number of sources of western influence for the Eskimo, it is the school program which is the most predominant in the eyes of the Eskimo. There is great reliance upon the education program for enabling them to become members of Canadian society, but Eskimo attitudes toward and evaluation of the schools indicate a mood of dissatisfaction with the program. The root of this uneasiness can be found in what has been termed a sense of socio-economic inadequacy. The socio-economic reality which the Eskimo knows confronts him with the fact that he is largely unable to maintain his present standard of living without a blatant dependency upon the Canadian government."--Abstract.
