    Description

    The land and the sea have been direct links to survival to a hardy group of people in the northern extremes of the Earth. Each group is separate to its own domain, and their land and sea differ even if the distance between them is not great. The rules of the land and the sea are unwritten, and they have been presented to the new generations by Elders through the stories of the land and the sea since dawn immemorial. Cultural heritage is a virtue in itself; it is a value so profound that it continues to be imbedded deeply in the hearts, minds, and souls of the people who have weathered change despite overwhelming odds.
