Description:
Place names, which are part of the Inuit Oral tradition, are closely related to the stories that also make up Oral tradition. Indeed, many stories are linked to special places, which are mentioned when a story is told. This is illustrated by the mapping of Inuinnnait place names mentioned in the stories of the Oral tradition as it was recorded by Diamond Jenness in 1914-1916, Knud Rasmussen in 1923 and Maurice Métayer (OMI) in 1958.
