Nicole Stuckenberger has been the Stefansson Postdoctoral Fellow at the Dickey Center Institute for Arctic Studies, Dartmouth College, for the past two years. In 1999, as part of her fieldwork for her Ph.D. on Inuit society and religion (Community at Play, Amsterdam: Rozenberg Publishers, 2005), Dr. Stuckenberger spent fourteen months living in the Inuit community of Qikiqtarjuaq in the new Canadian territory of Nunavut. While she was there, the people shared their observations and stories and took her on camping and hunting trips out on the land. Drawing on the knowledge they gave her, Dr. Stuckenberger has presented Dartmouth’s collections through the prism of hunting, social, and religious life and the profound Inuit connection to sila, and to the animals of the Arctic region.
