Social change and the Eskimo co-operative at George River, Quebec: R42-3/1966-1E-PDF

"George River, Quebec, is a small Eskimo community of 151 people located on the southeast side of Ungava Bay 16 miles up the George River from the coast itself. This population includes one Qadloona (white) transient family which represents the Department of Northern Affairs and National Resources (DNANR) of the Government of Canada, which is responsible for the administration of Eskimo affairs in Northern Quebec. Beginning in 1959, the people of George River went through an intensive period of social change, the results of which the present author studied in the summer of 1964, which will be taken as the ethnographic present."--Introduction.
