IN THIS PAPER WE TAKE it as given that an appropriate level of cultural retention is contributive in facilitating the adaptation of traditional band and tribal societies to more developed/industrialized conditions of existence. Information is presented on the relative acculturation of Canadian Inuit, the kinds of employment experience they have had in recent years, and the consequences of various employment options for cultural retention. We conclude that the conditions of cultural retention among non-literate indigenous people are quite different from those among literate immigrant ethnic communities. Implications for similar groups in other developing societies are discussed briefly.
