Nuussuarmiut is based on research conducted by the author from 1966 to 1968 in the community of Nuussuaq, in the Upernavik District, West Greenland. As Hansen explains in a much appreciated Introduction cum prologue, his career interest at the time he began this fieldwork was in material culture. This is amply evidenced by the numerous, highly detailed sketches and scale drawings that, along with archival and the author’s own photographs, are integral to almost every chapter.
