Aleutian Islanders: Eskimos of the North Pacific (1944)
DOCUMENT Citation Only George I Quimby jr.

J. Whittaker: [Exhibit guide, general info, not too useful], “The spear-thrower is like a rigid sling...it acts as an extension of the arm and therefore enables the hunter to throw the spear with greater momentum and force. Modern experiments have shown that the spr and sprthr lack the accuracy of the bow and arrow but possessed greater penetrating power...advantage in hunting tough-hided sea mammals. Other advantages...are its lack of recoil and fact that it does not require use of both hands.”...

Ambiguous beings: the ontological autonomy of Inuit dogs (2016)
DOCUMENT Full-Text Peter Whitridge.

Part of the attraction of relational ontology is its encouragement to discard conventional epistemological hierarchies. We needn’t frame our investigations with the usual weighty themes – economy, social relations, ideology – but can begin anywhere, with any sort of question, and tug on the thread until the archaeological fabric unravels. Here I begin with dogs, and their relations with humans and other animals in the Inuit past. Inuit had an exceptionally complex relationship with the dogs that...

Covering Bones: The Archaeology of Respect on the Kazan River, Nunavut (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Max Friesen. Andrew Stewart.

Complex relationships between people and animals define life in the northern past. For Inuit these relationships are manifested in many ways; particularly in practices that are often described as "showing respect" for animals, thus promoting stable relations between animal and human societies. Frustratingly, many of these activities, which are so prominent in the ethnographic record, have few archaeological correlates. Here, we examine one important practice with a relatively high level of...

Digging Deep or Just Scratching the Surface: Challenges and Successes with Labrador Inuit Archaeobotany (2015)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Cynthia Zutter.

Over past decade, I have assembled a reasonable variety of archaeobotanical data sets from 17th and 18th century Labrador Inuit sites, which includes both macro- (seeds, wood) and micro-botanicals (phytoliths and starches). The recovery and interpretation of these remains, however, has met with many challenges. I will discuss a number of these challenges along with the successes of this work and provide some guidelines to further archaeobotanical research and other work of this type in the...

Labrador: Inuit and Europeans, more than just a trade (2016)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Laurence Pouliot.

Labrador, an important crossroad for cultural and material goods in America, has known many social changes during the 18th century. The inhabitants of this vast and cold territory have changed their way of living during this period by transforming their winter houses, by adopting new objects and by changing their social organization. European and Inuits have lived side by side at this time, trading together. All these exchanges have created more than just a trade network. New objects and new...


Manufacturing reality: Inuit harvesting depictions and the domestication of human-animal relations (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Peter Whitridge.

Schematic harvesting scenes incised on tools are a stock variety of both precontact and historic Inuit graphic art. They sometimes seem to depict historically specific events, which they effectively commemorate, and have real (sometimes precise) informational content that must have been important for the dissemination of technical harvesting knowledge among a hunter’s peers, and its inter-generational transfer. However, the harvesting setups – such as a boatload of hunters on the verge of...


The Mechanical Properties of Marine and Terrestrial Skeletal Materials. Implications for the Organization of Forager Technologies (2009)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Amy V Margaris.

The innate, mechanical properties of tool raw materials place ultimate limits on how the materials can be worked and used, thus affecting most facets of tool use-lives. Prehistoric forager groups such as the Alutiiq of Alaska's Kodiak archipelago constructed tools not only from stone, but also from a range of skeletal materials whose mechanical properties are not well understood. Laboratory tests were carried out to determine the material stiffness, strength, and toughness (fracture resistance)...

Queering the Inuit Past: Archaeology as LGBTQ Allyship (2017)
DOCUMENT Citation Only Meghan Walley.

The real-world utility of academic archaeology is frequently called into question. I address this perception by demonstrating that archaeology has unique potential in the sphere of LGBTQ activism. Because archaeology deals in constructing past narratives, it has the discursive power to naturalize or denaturalize existing social structures and identities. While archaeology has a long history of reinforcing normative social categories, archaeologists have recently begun to apply queer theory,...
