The Eskimo community at Port Harrison P.Q.: R42-3/1961-1E-PDF

"This report is based on research carried out while the author was employed by the Northern Co-ordination and Research Centre during the summer of 1958. It was submitted in thesis form as a partial requirement for an MA degree to the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at McGill University. It examines the process of social change among the 350 Eskimos living in the area of Port Harrison by distinguishing two categories within the population. The categories are compared in terms of social organization, and consist of, first, those Eskimos who live in traditional camps and subsist on a mixed economy of hunting and trapping, and second, those who have moved recently to the settlement at Port Harrison and subsist on wage labour for white employers."--Abstract.
