Culture Map Errors[edit]

There should be no culture on the island of Newfoundland in 900 and 1100, no people lived there. Beothuk arrived in the 1200s. Norse were there in the 1000s.

"There appears to have been minimal (if any) genetic connection between the Dorset and the Thule"

There has been established a link, a suggestion of interaction, due to recent finds and genetic analysis. It seems as if some of the Dorsets/Tunits have been assimilated into Inuit culture, or at least a previous people other than Inuit has been assimilated. Granted, it's not proven that they must be the same as the Dorsets, but it's hard to imagine what else they may have been. Interestingly "Tunit" isn't that far from "Yuit" or "Juit", the Siberian Yupik. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.49.220.65 (talk) 19:05, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

DNA analysis[edit]

Does anyone know which firm was used to identify the genes?

What are the differences of genes between these tribes and Inuit tribes? They talk similar, but have various versions of dialects, but still understands each other. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arviatlands (talkcontribs) 15:03, 14 December 2010 (UTC)

Various tribes of Inuit with various background[edit]

Various tribes of Inuit dealt with different tribes differently. I.E.) the "Tariurmiut Tribe" will have more contact with the "Tuniit" and have more friendly relations with them than other tribes who live far away. Therefore, the tribe with better relations will have a different version of a tale to tell his offsprings and in turn his offspring will pass it on to his grandchildren.

Each tribe has a way of life, with morals that pertains to living in their areas. So, if a tribe that usually bumps into a different tribe will have a better intertribal relations than that of a tribe that don't usually bump into a different tribe. One trait of "Tuniit" is they have white eyes, while "Inuit" have brown or light brown eyes.

Total honesty is required in order to live up in the extreme conditions such as the Arctic. One small misunderstanding might have a deadly consequence, and this is known throughout the arctic communities. Since the erection of wooden houses by the gov't, the honesty issue has become more and more problematic, as we no longer need to tumble around the tundra, but in a small way.

Few small books might be able to explain this paradigm, "Echos from a frozen land" by "Donald B. Marsh" and "Eskimos" by "Gleason Ledyard". In the eyes of the authors, all tribes are the same, with the exception of living in a different area. This would explain the different atitudes of the people they are talking about, as they are different in tribal origins. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.181.32.102 (talk) 21:35, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Inhabitants at Port aux Choix, Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada[edit]

The map which shows the Dorset Eskimo is not correct. According to archaeological evidence uncovered at Port aux Choix, Newfoundland the Dorset made their way further south to this community. The map incorrectly shows the Dorset only reaching the northern tip of Labrador.
