Scope and Content
35 black-and-white snapshots of Inuit people (Eskimos) and their villages, some with handwritten captions on the backs. Images
include wooden sculptures and structures; kayaks being repaired; baskets and women weaving; hundreds of herring strung up
to dry; shots of men, women, and children in various locations, in both traditional and modern clothing; a woman chewing a
leather sole to soften it. Of some interest are the editorial comments in some of the captions, such as "Katie is really cute
for a native."
