Sanaaq : an Inuit novel by Mitiarjuk Nappaaluk( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sanaaq is an intimate story of an Inuit family negotiating the changes brought into their community by the coming of the qallunaat, the white people, in the mid-nineteenth century. Composed in 48 episodes, it recounts the daily life of Sanaaq, a strong and outspoken young widow, her daughter Qumaq, and their small semi-nomadic community in northern Quebec. Here they live their lives hunting seal, repairing their kayak, and gathering mussels under blue sea ice before the tide comes in. These are ordinary extraordinary lives: marriages are made and unmade, children are born and named, violence appears in the form of a fearful husband or a hungry polar bear. Here the spirit world is alive and relations with non-humans are never taken lightly. And under it all, the growing intrusion of the qallunaat and the battle for souls between the Catholic and Anglican missionaries threatens to forever change the way of life of Sanaaq and her young family

Le monde de Tivi Etok : la vie et l'art d'un aîné inuit by Jobie Weetaluktuk( Book )

6 editions published in 2008 in French and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book contains the actual words of an Inuit hunter and artist who lived his entire life in northern Quebec and Labrador : the future National Park of Torngat Montains and Koroc river (the book reproduce spectacular photographies of this territory). It is a record of his travels, his hopes, his experiences and his observations. Reading these stories we are carried away into a world of discovery filled with knowledge and rich with the complexity of a full life. This book of Tivi Etok’s interviews and stonecuts is a valuable source of wisdom and teachings, worthy of close examination. Non-Inuit will find in these pages the story of a courageous and artistic life, and a model for us all."--Publisher
