This was the same process relayed by anthropologists as a march of death forced upon Inuit by whalers and the rifle. Indeed, the appropriation of non-Inuit culture into Inuvialuit ways of life allowed native northerners to withstand a greater threat than Euro-­ American technology: Euro-American diseases.

It also necessitated even closer interaction with northern police, whalers, and scientists to secure support for Inuvialuit lifestyles and patrol the activities of an increasing number of colonial agents. Given these conditions, Inuvialuit narrate the arrival of whalers and their diseases in the Arctic as intensifying the hybridization of Inuit and non-Inuit worlds, rather than one of these worlds consuming the other. In these accounts, Inuit—not anthropologists—served as brokers of culture and nature.
