Abstract

The snowmobile, a recent technological innovation in northern Alaska, has caused dramatic changes in the lives of the Noatak Eskimos. Only a few quantitative measures of the nature and extent of cultural change attributable to the introduction of the snowmobile are now available, but some trends can be discerned. /// Une innovation technologique récente dans le Nord de l'Alaska, l'auto-neige a causé des changements dramatiques dans la vie des Esquimaux Noatak. Seulement quelques recherches quantitatives sur la nature et l'étendue du changement culturel dues à l'introduction de l'auto-neige sont maintenant à notre portée, mais il est malgré tout possible de percevoir certaine tendance.
