Even in the coldest, most isolated places a rich culture can be found. The Greenlandic Inuits have lived on the ice for over 45,000 years. During our travels we were gifted an insight into this ancient yet adapted life style of residents in Nuuk. Young children played soccer in the playgrounds as old man watch over their streets and oceans.
The first Greenlandic man I spoke to told me “the word Inuit means hunters, we are hunters” he said smiling up at the ice. With that I realised that living among these frozen oceans and hunting such well adapted animals requires a great depth of learning and teaching. Wisdom seems to be as apparent as the ice here. have a lot to learn and a lot to see.
There is strong pride in the hearts of the the indigenous people here, and their identities reflect their skilled hunting practices and traditions. The landscape provides a sort of freedom I’ve never felt before, distracting my mind from the unnecessary pressures and expectations of modern society that just last week I held so closely.
