About this book

Language: Inupiaq

Sivuninga Sikum is about the Inuit relationship with sea ice. Focusing on three communities, the book presents the annual cycle of ice and associated activity, discusses the meaning of sea ice for each location, and compares the ways in which each group of people has adapted to their environment and is now adjusting as that environment changes.

Sivuninga Sikum was written by a team of researchers, including local residents, who spent time together in Barrow, Alaska; Clyde River, Nunavut, Canada; and Qaanaaq, Greenland. In each place they traveled on the ice, learned about local ice terminology and dynamics, and shared stories and ideas. The format of the book reflects the various ways the team members know sea ice, through the words and images of local residents organized around themes such as "home," "food," and "freedom." Maps, calendars, and the rich Inuit vocabulary for sea ice provide additional insights into the Inuit relationship with sea ice.
