Nanoq is a tribute to the traditions of the indigenous people that for 15,000 years have used the dog sled, the knife and the needle as their survival tools in the Arctic. The indigenous peoples in the Arctic live in two different worlds: The traditional world, and the modern world. In this project, one of the themes we explore is the sharp contrast in the social life between these two worlds. How does this contrast affect them economically, ecologically, socially and ideologically? Is it possible for future generations to choose the traditional life?
