A primary contribution that binds people together socially, and which has always played a part in our survival, is the sharing of food and the willingness to cooperate when the need arises. At times sharing and cooperation are based on very formal rules, while at other times, it is simply expected to be done. When animals are killed on the hunt, they are shared, when people are in need, they are looked after; it is the Inuit way and it represents a value that we continue to honour.
