Inuit OdysseyStreaming Video - 2009
Who are the Inuit, and what are their origins? In this program, host Niobe Thompson, an anthropologist of Arctic cultures, explores the Inuit, or Tuli, migration from Siberia, across Canada, and ultimately to Greenland during the Middle Ages. First, Thompson examines Tuli life in 11th-century Russia, specifically the reliance on Asian iron to make weapons and boat parts. Anthropologist Max Friesen then explains how the Tuli crossed the Arctic circle into Canada, how they survived the inhospitable weather, and how they interacted with the native Dorset people. A description of the final leg of the Tuli migration into Greenland concludes the program.
