Suicidal behaviour among the Netsilik Eskimos: R42-3/1960-2E-PDF
"During two field trips in the summer of 1959 and the winter of 1960 among the Arviligjuar Eskimos of Pelly Bay, District of Keewatin, a considerable number of successful and attempted suicide cases were recorded. The survey also gathered data on interpersonal and intergroup relations, namely shaman-patient, shaman-shaman interactions, sharing practices, problems of circulation of women, parents-descendants relations, feuding, etc. A first analysis of this material indicated a very low level of social integration of traditional Netsilik society."--p. .
