Rate this:
The Inuit are going through a delicate transition phase that is causing them to abandon centuries-old traditions, replacing them with those of today's world. Their grandparents still lived underground. They ate only locally-sourced food and they had been doing the same domestic rituals for centuries. Now, instead, many of them would like to migrate, no longer having to put up with the hard labor of hunting and fishing in glacial temperatures. The problems of alcoholism and widespread unemployment, of global warming and of the advent of big mining companies are the preoccupying setting for the life of today.s Inuit population, fighting for its survival on a fragile stage like actors who have lost their script.
