Voyage to Kitsissut: Early Watercraft and Species Relationships in Avanersuqq, NW Greenland
Kitsissut can only be accessed by crossing a difficult stretch of water that remains open
year-round. To reach the islands, Paleo-Inuit must have built and used navigable watercraft. This conclusion offers new insights into the Early Paleo-Inuit’s relationship with both marine and terrestrial species and ecosystems. This talk will discuss these findings and explore the creativity of Early Paleo-Inuit and the historical structure of High Arctic environments.
