This chapter addresses traditional Inuit societies and their responses to climatic changes. It is argued that, due to the Arctic region's island-like status concerning environment, climate, geography, and cultural history, and due to an interdisciplinary Arctic research tradition, this region is particularly favourable to study and learn from, with regard to societies and climate by: 1. relatively new tradition to the culture groups of the region (Nelson ; Huntington ). Canadian fur traders colonized the region in the 19th century followed by Ameri-can gold miners and other colonists in the 20th century who brought a very different culture, systems of governance, and land ethic to interior Alaska (Naske and Slotnick.

ARCTIC. ARCTIC. The Arctic lies north of 70 ° latitude, marked by the tree line of the Subarctic. Few cultural groups occupy the Arctic: the Inuit live across the circumpolar region from northern Siberia throughout Greenland; the Aleuts and Yu'pik live on the coast and islands of southwestern Alaska; and six major Saami groups live in the northern reaches of Scandinavia and western Russia. The pre-Dorset culture developed at the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. One of the Paleoeskimo groups, the bearers of the culture Saqqaq, settled in the western part of the island, while the people of Independence I invaded the northernmost part and settled in the Peary Land. It seems that migrations were connected with the spread of musk oxen.
