Un vent de changement: Almost!

Following the period of conversion to Christianity, the Inuit became ashamed of their traditions, and let go of their former lifestyle, their fundamental beliefs. The language barrier and a general lack of communication led to misunderstandings on each side about the other’s culture.

Today’s Inuit owe their survival to the beliefs and the endurance of their ancestors. In the old days, there were no rifles for hunting; people lived in housed made of sod or ice. They were dependent on game animals for meat, clothing, and bedding. Today’s Inuit should take pride in their heritage and traditions.
