My northern cousins now got their own podcasts, and it’s a great thing for all the people below who wonder what it’s like to live even further north than the Arctic Circle. This is a pretty cool thing. So warm up your iPod or whatever you use and check them out. It’s a project of the National Park system up in Nunavut, Canada/Inuit Territory, and it’s called Inuit Knowledge Podcasts.
Scroll down the page a bit, and you can find out what Inuit folks know about polar bear behavior, cultural stuff like the qulliq (a traditional Inuit oil lamp that’s a symbol of knowledge and survival), and about how they transmit knowledge to each other, an, hello, some Inuit perspectives on the environmental changes they’ve witnessed in their lifetimes. I like the Inuit sayings and indicators that have to do with the environment.
Check it out. A real eye-opener, probably.
I gotta go ring this guy up. See you later.
