Well I am so glad you have enjoyed this thread Ariel .. guess what ? You are in for a real treat because there is a 'sister' thread on another forum.

High in the Arctic.. Eskimo

The whiskers ? used as needles, eyes are eaten by some people. bones are used for many purposes in construction.

the skin for clothing, hats, pants, gloves, vests etc parky's seal skin is waterproof and very expensive.

These people waste 'nothing' !! everything has a purpose, yes it is a most fascinating life every day, to think I was originally sent here just for 3 weeks to do a quick job, but I fell in love with the Arctic, and 30 years later I am still here. I quit that companyas soon as my job was finished, I wasn't leaving .. .. I knew I had discovered PARADISE !!

These people are just so .. .. .. 'happy' !! .. ... & content ! No complaints.. that is the first thing I noticed, these people just never complain !! That's what struck me as so .. .. ODD.

Another thing that is odd, and noticable, is the constant absence of hands. !!!

Where are all the hands ?? Inside the parky to keep warm !!















My hands are always cold, even with gloves on or mittens. I have no idea how these children stay out and play out all day / night with no protection for their hands, but this is the norm. and I see it all day long, and it sure puzzles me, I sure wish I could do that, I am tired of cold numb fingers !!

Thanks for these wonderfully informative pictures. I particularly like the photo of the great grandparents, and am delighted to hear about the dental floss.

Great stuff,

I live in the Northwest Territories and Yukon for 20 years, and enjoyed to lifestyle of the north so much. The Inuit people are amazing. You capture them so well.

Thank you iamcdn & ShaneEngelking, I have spoken the truth / w/ photographs to show & tell of life in the far north regions of the Arctic. I have lived & loved here, for 30 years time, It has been a time of great morning / sadness / grief / loss of life & celebration over the years, so many people that I was so close to are gone. Died so young, Forever etched in my memory of a 'people' that are the GREATEST (oldest)hunters on the ENTIRE face of this earth.

Any of these (true) stories can easily be verfired in many ways !!

It is my GREATEST love and respect for the Inupiaq people .. .. that have LED ME, into this labor of love, to publish .. .. their story, I have been an observer in a most intimate way, that very few have ever had the honor and pleasure to become one with these Incredible Inupiaq People(s) of the Arctic !! I have lived and worked in almost every village up here, and in village after village, the people are so kind, generous, I could never ever leave this frozen, Far North remote paradise of ALASKA !! - 'nothing out there in the real world'.. .. has this SPIRIT !

I think these need to be in a book. How do you keep your chemicals from ruining?

Well I haven't used chemicals & paper since 1985, but is was simple to keep my chemicals from 'aging' .. I used GALLONS of chemicals and 100'S of sheets of paper DAILY !

I would go through 3 1/2 gallons (kit) of Kodak chemicals (prints) in about 2 or 3 days !

The sun goes below the horizon on November 17th, It does not come back above the horizon until Jan 24th.. But we do get some light (1 1/2 hours) each and every day, during this time.
