    It is said that Greenland means 'the land of man'. To the Greenlandic natives, it is home, where the dark days and sunlit nights demand the human spirit to endure at all costs. Dressed in polar bear pants, seal skin mittens, and a reindeer jacket hand made by his grandmother, Thomas Martika has never left his home town of Qaanaaq, Greenland. Struggling to hold on to his culture despite changing times, he shares his concerns, "Scientist say there are not many narwhals, or walrus, but form our eyes we can see a lot of animals. We try to say to our government what it's like here but our government does not hear from us, they only follow the word of the scientist. But our quota is too low and we can't hunt very many animals, maybe only enough for 10 or 20 hunters. Many young children must go and look elsewhere for another job." With limited options to make money, many of Greenland's youth have strayed from the traditional Inuit ways. Greenland is an island of unparalleled beauty, and the coexistence between humans and animals depends upon the delicate balance of nature in the harshest of places.
