The Peoples

As illustrator of the book Inuit: Glimpses of an Arctic Past, published by the Canadian Museum of Civilization in 1995, Frédéric Back depicted the traditional lifestyle of the inhabitants of the circumpolar region.

These Arctic peoples include the Inuit in Alaska, Canada, and Greenland and their aboriginal neighbours in Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland and Siberia.
