Nirjutit Imaani: Edible Animals of the Sea
Nirjutit Imaani: Edible Animals of the Sea is more than a cookbook. It is a window into Inuit traditions, practices, and language through recipes and stories dedicated to fish and seal.

Includes: illustrations of tools and techniques for preparing fish and Inuit harvesting tools, and cooking on the land; notes on harvesting, cooking, and fermenting seal; parts of a seal diagram; notes on dialects and writing systems; and vivid colour photographs.
