Soul, beautify thyself
- The INUIT of Alaska, Canada and Greenlandaf Ole Jørgensen
When the first edition of SOUL, BEAUTIFY THYSELF appeared, the renowned Danish Keeper of National Antiquities P. V. Glob stated in the Danish newspaper Politiken:We call the hunters, who have lived along the southern coasts of the Arctic Sea for thousands of years, Eskimos - but the name is new. It does not appear until 1611 in a Jesuit priest's account of the people to the north of the Indians. The name he used is 'eskimautsik': those who eat raw meat. To themselves they are INUIT: human beings. This outstanding book deals with those Inuit who live in the coastal areas of Alaska, Canada and Greenland
