Intensive study of the techniques employed by modern day Eskimos to exploit their natural environment to provide an increased insight into the dynamic relationship that exists between the Eskimo culture and its natural environment. Mr. Richard Nelson, of the Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin, has been engaged in intensive ethnographic studies of the Eskimo exploitation of the sea ice (Nelson, 1966). The study that follows is meant to complement Mr. Nelson's work by presenting a description of native exploitation of the inland regions.
