Record #177370:

Anthropology in an era of Inuit empowerment / Edmund Searles.

Title: Anthropology in an era of Inuit empowerment / Edmund Searles.
Author(s): Searles, Edmund.
Date: 2006.
Publisher: Lincoln, NB: University of Nebraska Press
In: Critical Inuit studies : an anthology of contemporary Arctic ethnography. (2006.),
Abstract: Examines how Arctic anthropology is implicated in creation of essentialized image of Inuit culture and considers impact on Inuit society in general. Argues that it is necessary to understand indigenous peoples through drama of cultural identity, since identity constitutes key element of ethnic resurgence; also that Inuit definitions of culture and tradition have become not just resources of political empowerment and self-enrichment but categories that are sometimes used to exclude and discriminate.
