Between 1955 and the mid‐1960's, the Inuit of Canada underwent one of the fastest cultural transitions of any population in recorded history. Taken from their lands where life was lived in hunting camps using dog teams for transportation, they were forcibly relocated by the government into wood framed "settlements". Now required to pay rent, use snowmobiles to reach distant hunting lands their lives required the adoption of southern practices.
