In 1862, fourteen days after being ordained priest in the Congregation of the Oblate Missionaries of Mary- Immaculate, Émile Petitot left France for the Athabasca- Mackenzie region of the Canadian North. During the years he spent in the Canadian Northwest, Petitot was interested chiefly in the geography of the country and the ethnology of its people. His contributions to geography are exhaustive, and in the field of anthropology, his publications cover the Chiglit Eskimos, the Dene, and the Algonquin Indians. His linguistic works include a French-Eskimo vocabulary.
