Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document The first part of this monograph is devoted to a description of the topography, climate, and animal life of the Ungava District, and also a general sketch of its Eskimo and Indian inhabitants. The remaining chapters are ethnographic accounts of the Koksoagmyut Eskimos (omitted from this document) and the Naskapi Indians. Mr. Turner describes in considerable detail the material culture of the Naskapis, i.e. their food, clothing, dwelling, handicrafts, means of transportation, tools and weapons, and method of hunting. There is also information on amusements and festivals, but practically nothing on other aspects of life. The influence of fur trade on the native culture is mentioned throughout the monograph. A compilation of folklore concludes this useful study.
