Primary IR Contact
The Inuit practiced a form of shamanism based on animist principles. Because most of Greenland is covered in ice, the Greenland Inuit or Kalaallit only live in coastal settlements, particularly the northern polar coast, the eastern Amassalik coast and the central coasts of western Greenland. Once its more hospitable lands were largely settled, the government of Canada and entrepreneurs began to take a greater interest in its more peripheral territories, especially the fur and mineral-rich hinterlands. They became part of Inuit mythology. Angakkuit were not trained; they were held to be born with the ability and recognized by the community as they approached adulthood. There was also a larger notion of community as, generally, several families shared a place where they wintered.
