During 1939-1940 Margaret Lantis lived for a year on Nunivak Island off the coast of west-central Alaska. Although the major purpose of her research was to record social organization, religion, and folklore, she also took extensive notes on technology and material culture. Lantis has published extensively on various aspects of Nunivaarmiut social culture but a projected study of material culture was never completed. The present account is based primarily on Lantis's field notes on Nunivaarmiut technology and material culture. - Includes bibliographical references (p. 43-44)
