A majestic prophet once walked the vast regions of the Arctic, challenging the old ways and sharing what he had learned from the Grandfather in the Sky.
This was Maniilaq, a member of the Inupiat Eskimo tribe, whose prophecies of the arrival of the white man and of modern technology have been orally passed down through many generations. Now author Sarah Haile has put together a powerful account of Maniilaq's life, showing the effects his teachings had on his people, opening the doors to a better way of life. This amazing story has remained virtually unknown beyond the Eskimo people. (Publisher website)
