Body techniques of health: making products and shaping selves in northwest Alaska / Amber Lincoln.

Title: Body techniques of health: making products and shaping selves in northwest Alaska / Amber Lincoln.
Author(s): Lincoln, Amber.
Date: 2010.
In: Études Inuit = Inuit Studies. (2010.), Vol. 34(2) (2010)
Abstract: Considers connections between body technologies and wellness, focusing on residents of north-west Alaska, who suffer disproportionately from social and behavioural illness. In Nome and Kotzebue, Iñupiat and Yupik women prescribe traditional activities (e.g. processing food and making tools and crafts from local harvests) to family members in effort to promote their wellbeing. Also Alaska Native institutions organise subsistence activities as solutions to locally perceived social ills such as substance abuse.
Notes:

Études Inuit = Inuit Studies. Vol. 34(2) :39-59 (2010).

In special issue Creative technologies.
