DYNAMIC INUIT SOCIETIES IN ARCTIC HISTORY

This web site provides an overview of the International Polar Year (IPY) project "Dynamic Inuit Social Strategies in Changing Environments: A Long-Term Perspective".  This project was developed through the International IPY structure, and funded by the Government of Canada Program for IPY

Through six separate fieldwork programs which combine archaeology, traditional knowledge, and the study of ancient environments, our research team is exploring the impacts of climate change, cultural interaction, and Inuit social organization on the “big picture” of Inuit culture history over the past millennium in the eastern North American Arctic.
