    There is nothing like reading snow….this is bull shit…..humans have a very good subconscious memory and everything they see slowly imprints on their memory and thats how they always know how to go back home…i can challenge these Inuits that they cant find their way back home in Himalayas……i guess may be they can read the stars night thats the only accurate way to know the travelling direction…otherwise they will die and MY brother “snow leopard” will eat them in HIMALAYAS

    I agree with you, we should keep traditions alive regardless of your backgroud.

    I would love to spend a few months with the Inuits to learn some basic Arctic survival techniques from them.

    I think the point is make the effort to keep the traditions alive. , and I read that in Arctic Canada even the names of places are changed to Inuit language. 🙂

  8. sweet, i would like to hunt seals with them one day

  9. haha you know once they take the national geographic camera away, the father hands to his son a GPS and says: Here you go now go and kill some fucking seals so we can sell their fur and then come home and eat your microwave pizza.

    00:01: “Pass on his skills to his son”. The father is relaxing on the couch watching TV. Great skill. 1:03: “Leave the modern world behind”. But look at that village. Modern? 1:55: “He can still find his way by following the patterns in the snow”. They are showing the dogs’ butts. 2:53: They have a special word for meeting the polar bear. It translates to “pissing my pants”. 3:24: “His own knowledge of the land”. I don’t see any land, just snow.
