First published in 1922, The Life of the Copper Eskimos has long been regarded as a classic of Arctic ethnography. In this groundbreaking work, pioneer anthropologist Diamond Jenness describes in vivid detail the everyday interactions, practices, customs, and beliefs of the Copper Inuit (Inuinnait) with whom he lived from 1914 to 1916 - people who were, at the time, barely touched by contacts with the Western world. Featuring a new introduction that expertly sets the stage for Jenness's observations, this exceptional volume offers modern readers a rare glimpse into a vibrant and dynamic peoples' past ways of life. The preface is written by Barnett Richling, who recently retired as Chair of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Winnipeg.
