Fortaellinger om INUA / Jens Rosing.

Title: Fortaellinger om INUA / Jens Rosing.
Translated title: Tales of INUA.
Author(s): Rosing, Jens.
Date: 1998.
Language: Danish.
In: Grønland. (1998.), Vol. 5 (1998)
Abstract: Author explains that concept of Inua is best translated "the human in the thing". It can symbolise ownership. Inua of mask is good starting point in explicating notion. With mask one shifts identity. Female mummies from Qilakitsoq had symbolic object on dress - akko - black guillemot, symbolising quick and easy birth. Mummies had tattoo of extra face on forehead to mislead spirits. Article describes inua-ornamented harpoons, shaped like auks or narwhals. Dorset and Saqqaq people had distinctive signs. Medicine men's kit shows inua, seen in case of Maratse, and house shape has generative meaning.
