Spoils of the Arctic Hunt Equip a Grizzled Elder of the Nunamiut Tribe Young Eskimos fill such highly skilled jobs as pilot, nurse, and radar operator, but villagers and nomads of the remote north still earn their living by hunting and fishing. This 78-year-old veteran at Anaktuvuk Pass rests after a grueling 20-mile hunt across the trackless tundra. His equipment includes caribou hide gun case and telescope pouch, sealskin mukluks, and a parka trimmed with fur. © NATIONALGEOGRAPHICSOCIETY This woman at Anaktuvuk Pass cures supplies alongside freshly laundered trousers.
