Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
Jenness conducts a detailed inventory of the Copper Inuit
clothing, furniture, cooking implements, tools and hunting weaponry, with an emphasis on
the method of construction of hunting, heating and lighting apparatus. The work stresses
the total dependence of these people on a very few resources, consisting primarily of skin,
bone and horn products from seal and caribou. The completeness of the range of
illustrations generally results in descriptive clarity.
