The pattern of the relationship between the Eskimos and outsiders has been described as “boom and bust” as waves of outsiders have brought a series of changes characterised by brief periods of wealth, education and employment as well as poverty and disorganisation.
Peak periods have been those of whaling, modern fur trade, the building of military and defence bases, building of urban centres, and oil exploration and development.
Each Wave of activity has brought the Eskimos into contact with different social and economic forces, thereby producing great strains on the Eskimo way of life.
