Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This is a narrative of Pryde's experiences in the Northwest
Territories of the Canadian Arctic, first as an employee of the Hudson Bay Company, and
later (1966) as an elected member of the governing body of the Northwest Territories. The
author begins with his first trading post assignment at Baker Lake in the Caribou Inuit
territory, and then describes subsequent posts at Spence Bay, Perry Island, Bathurst Inlet,
and Baychima in the Copper Inuit area. Although there is much information in this work on
Pryde's personal experiences in the Arctic region (indexed for OCM category 114), there is
also a wealth of data here on his close relationship with the Copper Inuit, as well as on
the climate, travel conditions in the region, snowhouse construction, hunting, fishing,
sealing, animal and plant life, birth, death, and marriage customs, and cultural changes in
the Arctic as of 1970. The ethnographic information is well integrated into the author's
personal account and provides the reader with an excellent overview of what life was like
in the Northwest Territories of Canada during the period 1958-1970.
