Info about projection
Merely 3000 people inhabit East Greenland’s 20.000km long coast. It is one of the least populated places on our planet. The environment of East Greenland created one of the most specialized hunting cultures in the world. There are few places on Earth where humans suffered more hardship and coped with an extremely hostile environment than here. A lot has changed and a lot of modern comforts became part of the everyday life. But the cultural roots are still deep and strong and the hunter is the pillar of society in these areas. But the status of the hunter as the economic basis of the society has been severely undermined. The undermining of economic structure of their society together with unstoppable cultural influences is threatening the existence of these unique people.
