Inuit Testimonies

The recorded testimony of Inuit people is among the most valuable resources in this virtual archive. But it is spread around many types of documents, from private letters to published books and articles. For your interest and convenience, we have chosen to gather this fascinating material together here as a Special Collection of Inuit Testimony, recorded in some cases by nineteenth-century explorers like Hall and Schwatka, and in others much more recently by authors and journalists like Dorothy Eber.
