Worldviews Of The Greenlanders: An Inuit Arctic Perspective. By Birgitte Sonne

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftAnmeldelseForskning


In this book the author brings together all the relevant sources about the cosmology of the Greenlandic Inuit, comparing Alaskan, Eastern Inuit, and Siberian sources.
This work allows access to material that is, for most people, otherwise difficult to access, and it provides valuable new insights. If anybody thought that the Greenlandic pre-colonial religion was in any way poor or simple, their view will be thoroughly shaken after reading this book.
The author states that one purpose of this work was to provide a Greenland companion to the fairly recent publications about the cosmologies of Canadian and Alaskan Inuit/Yupiit, and all themes are discussed with references to the works of her counterparts in Alaska and Canada and to many other researchers.
