A pile of caribou skulls and antlers rests in the yard of an iñupiaq home. iñupiaq hunters trade or give away antlers and ivory to community artists, who will carve them for sale. ⁣⠀

A polar bear patrols the sea ice slowly in search of seal breathing holes for its prey. this large male has seen many battles and has the scars to show for it.⁣⠀

An arctic tern hovers over a small pool on the tundra. arctic terns are the long-distance champions of the animal world, migrating from the arctic to the antarctic and back each year.⁣

Iñupiaq subsistence whaling is practiced in tune with the increasingly fickle nature of sea ice. wind has pushed floating ice near the shorefast ice and the whalers must wait until it shifts again, sometimes weeks later. the unpredictability of this coastal arctic environment means that the iñupiaq are the carriers of a vast ecological knowledge.⁣
