    General Note:
    Autrefois, toutes les femmes inuit recevaient des tatouages, ce qui était un rite de passage. Les tatouages étaient souvent sur le visage et les mains, mais pouvaient aussi être sur les bras, les jambes et/ou la poitrine.
    Source of title:
    Titre fondé sur la légende suivante tirée du photoreportage de l'ONF: Among the hospital's Eskimo patients is Mary Edetoak from Spence Bay. She belongs to one of the few remaining groups who still use tattoo marks; the custom is losing popularity with the younger generations.
