Inuit (pronounced /ˈɪnuːɪt/ or /ˈɪnjuːɪt/; Inuktitut: ᐃᓄᐃᑦ, “the people”) are a group of culturally similar indigenous peoples inhabiting the Arctic regions of Greenland, Canada, and the United States. Inuit is a plural noun; the singular is Inuk. The Inuit languages are classified in the Eskimo-Aleut family. In the United States and Canada the term “Eskimo” was commonly used to describe the Inuit, and Alaska’s Yupik and Iñupiat. “Inuit” is not accepted as a term for the Yupik, and “Eskimo” is the only term that includes Yupik, Iñupiat and Inuit. However, Aboriginal peoples in Canada and Greenland view “Eskimo” as pejorative, and “Inuit” has become more common. In Canada, sections 25 and 35 of the Constitution Act of 1982 named the “Inuit” as a distinctive group of Aboriginal Canadians who are not included under either the First Nations or the Métis. The Inuit live throughout most of the Canadian Arctic and subarctic in the territory of Nunavut; “Nunavik” in the northern third of Quebec; “Nunatsiavut” and “NunatuKavut” in Labrador; and in various parts of the Northwest Territories, particularly around the Arctic Ocean. These areas are known in Inuktitut as the “Inuit Nunangat”. In the United States, Inupiat live on the North Slope in Alaska and on Little Diomede Island. TheGreenlandic Inuit are the descendants of migrations from Canada and are citizens of Denmark, although not of the European Union.
Well this is HUGE and very interesting. I put more faith into the ways of tribes who have watched the stars for hunting and the seasons more than I do NASA. And I mean that. These Inuit elders have told Science the days are longer, they can hunt longer, it’s warmer earlier and colder quicker also. Very interesting article. Again, proving Science is not always right. I have noticed myself the Sun. It ALWAYS came up between 2 houses in the summer and behind the other in Winter. Now the Sun rises way to the left more. So please, take note of where the Sun rises and falls where you are and go here and see if it’s different http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/sunrise.html Now we know HUGE Earthquakes can an do knock the Earth off it’s axis, the one in Japan moved the Earth’s axis several degree and others did also, how long till we have what the Sun does and an “Earth Flip” Really, this is a question we MUST ask. This is fascinating what our Elders are telling us. Again, DO NOT expect this on the nightly news 😀 And links, Videos etc below, enjoy

We are all obsessed with the weather here in the West and rightly so with the unusual weather we have had to endure recently, extreme has become the new norm but what about our brothers and sisters living on the Canadian Arctic circle?
Inuit knowledge and climate change was discussed by delegates at the recent global warming summit in Copenhagen and what the Eskimo elders are saying have NASA, scientists and experts alike worried….Global warming might not be the whole story!
It seems the Inuit elders are also witnessing strange and unfathomable weather up there in the North.
The elders talk about how their world has changed, how it was then and how it is now.
It is a worrying picture, a picture of melting glaciers and thinning or disappearing sea ice.
Seals with burns on their coats and covered with sores and a thinner hide, the Seal skin has deteriorated and while scientists maintain man made pollution is contributing to climate change the elders are convinced something much much bigger is going on!
Astonishingly what the elders are saying is global warming is not the whole story…
The elders maintain the Sun doesn’t rise were it used too, they have longer day light to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before.
The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing, their sky has changed.
The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic.
The elders all agree, they believe the Earth has shifted, wobbled or tilted to the North. Zacharius Kunuk has literally been e-mailing NASA with information from the elders regarding changes in the sky and the position of the Earth on its axis….The elders are trying to reach out to warn the world of the effects of environmental change.
Exploring centuries of Inuit knowledge, allowing the viewer to learn about climate change first-hand from Arctic residents themselves, the film portrays Inuit as experts regarding their land and wildlife and makes it clear that climate change is a human rights issue affecting this ingenious Indigenous culture. Hear stories about Arctic melting and how Inuit believe that human and animal intelligence are key to adaptability and survival in a warming world.
