11am Discussion The Netsilik Eskimo Ch. 7-12 Infanticide is very prevalent among Eskimo groups. o girls killed more frequently than boys o Unbelievable how sometimes parents just let child freeze to death or suffocate and all preparations are made by the mother o Naming has a restrictive influence on infanticide Pre-marital and extra-marital sexual relations were quite common and easily established Interesting how the many suicide attempts and various ways are described o Some reach suicidal decision following a disaster affecting a near relative o Some reach it through the Eskimo looks at life and death o Some reach it through their religious beliefs Lazy hunters are not tolerated by are not tolerated by society at all Not surprisingly murder is not the most extreme form of aggression among the Netsilik o It can be committed it two ways, physically by knife or gun or supernaturally o Killing by magic as by no means the prerogative of shamans only.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
