HIGH in the Arctic .. .. Eskimo!!
I have been living with Inupiaq Eskimos for almost 30 years now. I have some amazing photographs to show you in this most unique
PHOTO ESSAY life in the Arctic @ 50 below zero !!
These hunters sleep outside, for two months, with no tents. They chop a trail with pick and axe for many miles, to move supplies, equipment and 700 people move the whole village out to that ocean ice pack.
So much for the stereotype of Eskimos as solitary hunters who live in igloos, wear parkas, use harpoons, and travel by dog-sled. That may have been the case 100 years ago. It isn't the case today.
A hundred years ago, most Americans were living on farms and riding in horse-drawn buggies. But that isn't how we portray them in media such as cartoons. Only American Indians and Alaskan Natives get stereotyped as living in the distant past.
