Maniilaq is written in Inupiaq and
Maniilaq is the name of a man that
is held in very high regard by the older Iñupiat
Eskimos of the Northwest Arctic. He was more commonly
known as Maniilauraq, and to some of the elders
in the area, he was an Eskimo prophet. They speak of him
with reverence and admiration. Many believe him and in
the fulfillment of his prophecies in this day and age.
This book presents the information which
the Center has on Maniilaq transcribed and translated
exactly as the elders have given it. There has been no
attempt made to edit any of the discussions as many of
the contributors have passed away. The materials are presented
here for you, the reader, to read and reach your own conclusions
about Maniilaq. You will find the accounts to be
repetitious, but as you read each variant of Maniilaq's
activities and teachings, you will acquire new information
which will add to your knowledge of the whole subject.

there were other barriers preventing or discouraging Alaska Natives
