Examines two important aspects of Inuit culture, cosmology and shamanism, that were in large part suppressed following the introduction of Christianity. It is based on interviews of elders conducted in 1998 by students at Nunavut Arctic College's Inuit Studies Program at Nunatta Campus in Iqaluit. The course, "Cosmology and Shamanism", was directed by Bernard Saladin d'Anglure, who also edited the written account.

Unique to this book is that it is based on two different sets of interviews. In addition to the elders interviewed in Iqaluit, the book draws on interviews that the editor conducted in Iglulik in 1972 among elders who had more direct personal experience with shamanism.
