To understand the mentality of an Utku Eskimo I try to put myself in the same shoes I know I will never fully understand why or how they think the way that they do because I dont have their eyes I have experienced an entirely different way of life My upbringing has entrenched my understanding of life and how it should be lived However I will try to use their glasses to see and understand the world from their view It is hard for me to look at their culture and not label things as right and wrong but I know that when looking into different societies you can not do that Inauttiaq was Jeans adoptive father The rest of her family consisted of her mother Allaq the oldest daughter Kamik who was away at school for most of her stay daughter Raigili daughter Saarak and the youngest daughter Qayaq who was born during her stay Jean was accepted into the family and treated as they would treat any other member However she was not held at the high expectations that people of her age usually were in the Utku society The Eskimos place strong value on caring for others needs and they always expect a return for the favor In many cases Jean not being used to their way of life was unable to give back to her family what they had given her She said When he was so fatherly he left me no alternative but to want to be daughterly- or to be needled by guilt when I could not be The expectations placed on her were similar to those that would be placed on those of a young child When the Utku raise their children they expect that the children will grow to take care and help with the camp They start young in preparing children for the work that lies ahead in order for their lives to function
