Arctic Hunters – The Netsilik Inuit

Monday 4 November at 6pm.

Royal Anthropological Institute

This classic ethnographic series reveals the lived reality of traditional Inuit life before European acculturation. The ‘Netsilik Eskimos’ of the Pelly Bay region in the Canadian Arctic, had long lived apart from other people and had depended entirely on animals, land and their own ingenuity to sustain life through the rigors of the Arctic year.  A selection of films and their relevance to contem­porary conservation issues of Inuit communities will be discussed by anthropologist Hugh Brody, author of ‘The Other Side of Eden: Hunter-gather­ers, Farmers and the Shaping of the World’.

The series follows on from our ESRC Open Day seminar CONFLICTING INTERESTS? and will focus on films showcasing the Human-Animal encounters on screen.
