The Inuit is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. Barbara Gray-Kanatiiosh, a member of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation, is the author of this title. The series is designed to appeal to students in grade 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Inuit or Eskimo people of the northern regions of Canada, Alaska, Siberia, and Greenland. A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Inuit people. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Inuit today. The final section outlines the creation of Nunavut in 1999, and the Eskimo-Indian Olympic games. This book also introduces students to a well-known Inuit entertainer, Susan Aglukark. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a graphic artist from the Mohawk Nation. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, 2 website recommendations, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Inuit of the North lived. It is accurate and bias-free. This series should be available in all school and public libraries. Guided Reading Level: P; Reading Level: 4.4
