This study was undertaken shortly after the resettlement of Inuit from northernmost Labrador to Makkovik in 1961. Prior to this, Makkovik had a primarily white settler population dating from the mid-nineteenth century. Ben-Dor found that each ethnic group had markedly different adaptations to the same natural environment, and he focuses on the various sociocultural systems that generate such diversity.
