Okalik Eegeesiak

Okalik Eegeesiak is Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council.

 

"Our entire North American Arctic homeland is a vast wildlife habitat nourishing a very fragile food chain in which we Inuit are but an important link. We Inuit are hunters. There aren't many subsistence hunting societies left in the world, but our Inuit circumpolar community is one of them."
