Thule Inuit

I rarely saw the native population during my 17 months in Greenland. Fortunately, the air base sponsored a (70 mile!) dog sled race with a grand prize of a rifle. This was enough to attract Inuit families from many miles around.

There was one other much more personal interaction with the natives of Thule – but that’s the subject of a later post. Stay tuned!

    Hey –
    I’ve put some pictures of those good ol’ days on the web, too – you are in a ton, of course. I even have some from the dog sled race, but haven’t got to them yet. It is a yahoo page – cherylhall64 is my id. Drop me a line if you do go take a look 🙂

    The photo of the inuit family in Thule is very nice. I would like to use it on a site about the West Nordic Region (Greenland, Iceland, The Faroe Islands). Any chance I can buy the rights to use it on the site? And what is the price?

    Please reply to my private mail.

    Best regards.
