Within all the communities, particularly the larger regional centers, economic activity is becoming much more diversified. Yet an emphasis on new economic opportunities has not diminished the deeply entrenched desire of Inuit to maintain a hunting way of life. While a casual observer of community life may not encounter traditional activities, close ties to the land remain fundamental for all Inuit. The rhythm of the seasonal cycle is deeply imprinted on our culture. It provides a very special calendar of events that is unique to our society and homeland.
