Ethnology of the Ungava District, Hudson Bay Territory (Classics of Smithsonian Anthropology)by Lucien M. Turner
Synopses & Reviews
Especially notable for Lucien Turner's descriptions of nineteenth-century Native material culture, Ethnology of the Ungava District was originally published in 1894 as part of the Smithsonian's Annual Report of the Bureau of American Ethnology series — often considered to mark the beginning of American anthropological studies. This reissue, with an insightful new introduction, ensures that Turner's work continues to be a classic introduction to the culture of the Innu and Inuit people of northern Quebec and Labrador.
