Land Problems and People Problems - The Eskimo as Conservationist.
Lotz, Jim
Much research has been done about the Eskimos, but with little beneficial result to the Eskimo. Economic development of northern Canadian territories has resulted in a wider gap between Eskimos and other Canadians since benefits accrue only to the second group. Evidence of damage to the land is already appearing. To solve problems of land use, conservation efforts could involve Eskimos and thus solve employment problems for the Eskimo. In conservation pursuits, the land would suffer less and Eskimos would have a wider range of opportunities than the mining industry or local government positions could provide. (JH)
