“Sea ice is my beautiful garden” Portraits of the last Arctic hunters 2019

The Inughuit hunters still travel by dog sleds on sea ice. But sea ice is getting thinner and thinner each year. Hunters encounter more open water now. Hunting on the sea ice has become more dangerous. The loss of sea ice threatens Inughuit’s traditional way of life. It’s possible this way of life will be lost forever.
