Caption:

Family Worship is conducted by Abelie Napartuk, 31, left, an Eskimo from Great Whale River on the east shore of Hudson Bay, who is studying to be an Anglican priest. The tent dwelling at Pangnirtung on Baffin Island is typical of the hunting camps now being replaced by government pre-fabricated housing. The change is one of many affecting Eskimo life and the church hopes Napartuk and 3 other Eskimos at the Arthur Turner Clergy Training school will provide a model for their people to follow.
