Industrial development in the north has disrupted the environment and Indigenous livelihoods. Memory and Landscape explores how Indigenous peoples in the Arctic are adapting to such rapid change. In this beautifully illustrated volume, Indigenous and non-Indigenous contributors use oral history and scholarly research from disciplines such as linguistics, archaeology, and ethnohistory to reveal the complex ways communities in the north—Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Siberia—strengthen their identities in the face of cultural disruption. The authors demonstrate why the resilience of Indigenous memory, marked in the land by place names and stories, must form the bedrock of Arctic studies.
