Drawing on Samuel Hearne's ugly account of an alleged bloodbath at Bloody Falls in 1771, Emilie Cameron finds how Qablunaat (non-Inuit, non-Indigenous humans) have used tales concerning the Arctic for over centuries as a device to justify ongoing colonization and monetary exploitation of the North. instead of looking ahead to Inuit to counter those narratives with their very own tales approximately their place of birth, Cameron argues that it's the accountability of Qablunaat to enhance new relationships with northerners―ones grounded within the political, cultural, monetary, environmental, and social landscapes of the modern Arctic.
