The Innu word aitnanu means "this is how we live." The words and images in this book are a record of the life of an Innu family and of Innu culture, a small society in northeastern Canada that has traditionally subsisted by hunting, fishing, and gathering.

Photographer Serge Jauvin lived for a year with Helene and William-Mathieu Mark, photographing every aspect of their daily lives. To accompany the photographs, the Marks related the stories of their lives, conveying along with their personal histories the Innu way of life and their culture's sometimes uneasy existence within North American society.

These words and images are a rich and vivid narrative of a people struggling to preserve their cultural identity.
