Scope note
Style and culture of the native people who live along the shores of Ungava Bay, on the south shore of Hudson Strait, and on the eastern coast of Hudson Bay. They exploit the resources of the vast area north of the treeline, especially sea mammals in the coastal waters, and also move inland to hunt caribou and at times penetrate the traditional Cree and Montagnais-Naskapi lands south of the treeline. Culturally close to the Inuit southeast of Baffin Island and to the Labrador Inuit, the Ungava nevertheless differ from these tribes in a number of linguistic and technological respects and in their social and religious customs.
