Efforts to provide audiologic services to the Inuit population of the Baffin Zone have frequently resulted in unexpected problems and frustrations. Often these are the product of two very different cultures coming together. This paper reviews the author's personal experiences in this regard with special reference to hearing aid attitudes, noise exposure, and the making of instructional audio-visual materials. A brief description of a recently revised hearing conservation program at Frobisher Bay is provided.
