I found this article very interesting:

(Thanks to Sally Morris of The Language Feed, a weekly email bulletin
summarizing media coverage of language.)

Inuk Sign Language's existence gives us all the more reason to think about
the role signing may have played in intercultural contact both before and
after outsiders/whites came along.

Indigenous sign languages have existed in large parts of North America and
elsewhere.  Sometimes they're mentioned in contexts where Chinuk Wawa was
used, though I'm not suggesting any such connection with InukSL.
