Eskimo Hunters in Alaska - The Traditional Inuit Way of Life

  • Published 7 years ago

When it comes to Eskimos and the Inuit way of life, many people picture a man, woman and a child in an igloo, with a small hole in the ice, hunting for fish. But what many do not know is that Eskimos are always looking for food from the sea.

Living on the shores of Alaska, Eskimos are walking the shores and looking for frozen fishes, many that the sea brings to them.

In total, there are more than 25,000 Eskimos still living in the traditional Inuit way of life on Alaska. All of them are American citizens.

In a small village, a woman shares her story of the Inuit way of life. The documentary is short, and recorded in 1949, but the traditions never change.

It is hard not to feel sympathetic for people who are experiencing a winter that can last for more than six months. As the woman in the documentary puts it, the summers are short and cool, and the winters are long. And once the winter comes, few ships pass by.
