The letters of Regimental Quartermaster Sergeant John A. Barrett, collected here for the first time, provide a comprehensive account of the work and life of the foresters from the Unit’s inception and departure from Newfoundland in 1917 to its return in 1919.

Voices of Inuit Leadership and Self-Determination in Canada presents a broad range of perspectives and voices — Inuit and non-Inuit, youth and Elders, academics and community members — united in their commitment to understanding what Inuit leadership is, has been, and will be. 

Across the pages, a portrait of Inuit leadership for the twenty-first century emerges. It is visionary and consensual, brutally honest about the past and optimistic for the future. It is determined in its will toward self-determination and resolute in its desire to assume control for the creation of knowledge about itself and its people.
