The Arctic – the people of the north
Around the Arctic Sea live groups of people who are prepared to meet the challenge of living in the harsh conditions.
Northern people such as the Inuit and their predecessors have over millennia a particular lifestyle in the Arctic region, in the north-eastern corner of Siberia, Alaska, Canada and Greenland.
Sami and Siberian people live in a broad belt from the Norwegian Sea in the west to the Bering Strait in the east.
Ethnographic Collections is engaged in a number of projects in the Arctic region.
