Global WarmingInuit Hunters Travel on the ice(North Greenland)

Two Inuit men travel across ice with sled and pack of sled dogs - Views from behind the sled as it travels. Excellent POV scenes from inside the sled as it travels along on the ice. Good shots of dogs pulling the sled. Inuit fisherman ice fishing and pulling up a catch - dogs being fed.

Inuit people have always traveled long distances through the vast ice fields of their territories of Northwest Greenland, mostly for hunting and sometimes spiritual quests. These scenes were filmed in the Siorapaluk Fjord while traveling to Siorapaluk village, the northernmost inhabited village in the world, located in the mythic region of Thule in North Greenland.  The Thule people were whale and seal hunters and were the first people to bring dogs into Greenland thus inaugurating the cultural history of dog sledding in Greenland, which is still a main mode of transport today.
