"Art from the Arctic: Inuit Prints and Sculpture" (11/20/09-2/14/10) exhibition label text:

Traditionally, Inuit men and women had very defined roles. Men hunted and fished, fashioned tools, shelter and transportation while women took care of the children, prepared food and made clothing. These roles sometimes crossed as they worked together as a unit according to their strengths and to ensure survival. Resettlement of Inuit to permanent communities has disrupted the balance of these traditional roles. The male role of hunter has greatly decreased while female roles have transferred easily to the new living situation in the Arctic.
