In this riveting book, psychological anthropologist Jean L. Briggs examines dramatic interactions between Chubby Maata, a three-year-old Inuit girl, and the adults in her world. In these playful yet emotionally charged dramas, Inuit adults enact with their children the plots that drive Inuit social life; they test, act out problems, entertain themselves, and create children who think and feel like Inuit.
