Synopsis

Yuit by Yvette Edmonds

In her second book on life in the Arctic, West Coast author Yvette Edmonds deals with Inuit culture during mid 20th century, at a time when many Inuit were turning from traditional life and adopting modern European ways. Liak is a courageous ten-year-old Inuit girl who talks her grandfather into letting her adopt an orphaned albino seal pup she names Yuit. But the shaman banishes Liak and her pup from the community for offending the Sea Goddess Nuliajuk. Liak's adventures lead her eventually to the new life she has dreamed about and a chance to attend school.
