This series of Web pages provides an insight into the culture of the Inuit, the people commonly referred to as "Eskimos," through the work of Dr. John Tyman, a geographer who has dedicated much of his life to travelling the world, living among, and studying diverse cultures.

Dr. Tyman lived with an Inuit family north of the Arctic Circle for eight months. This Web project brings to life his journeys and experiences, as well as comparing the traditional and contemporary lifestyles of the Inuit.

Copyright Issues and the Purpose of this Archive

This is the first in series of units to be released over the next couple of years. Each will consist of several hundred photos, a wide range of sound effects, recorded interviews, and in some cases video clips. Posted on the World Wide Web this material is free of any restriction as to copyright when used in schools. Having completed his first school assignments on slates, the author is mindful of how things have changed and aims now to provide raw materials free of copyright restrictions which students can use world-wide in the preparation of the power point presentations which are a feature of classrooms in the 21st Century. He hopes that in the process of so doing, students will not only value more highly the diversity of environments and peoples in the wider world, but also learn to tolerate, even affirm, cultural differences within their own community -- together with the need to reduce their environmental footprint. He hopes, too, that they will be able to produce assignments of which they can be justifiably. Photographs can of course be obtained from a variety of sources: what makes this archive unique is the provision of sounds to match.

The only condition attached to the use of this material in the classroom is the same as that which applies to any assignment which draws upon material produced by someone else namely that students footnote their sources. Since the originals of these photographs are now lodged in the Pitt Rivers Museum at Oxford, and the low resolution copies included in this project are reproduced courtesy of the museum, a correct citation should read:
