Inuit girls in Western Greenland

These Inuit girls in Western Greenland have painted their faces in traditional style to get money from tourists. Their community gets visited by an ever growing number of small adventure cruise ships and as global warming bites and their traditional way of  life begins to change rapidly it represents another income for them.

It's only when you talk to the Inuit/Greenlandic people that you realise how much of the ice has vanished in the past few years. Even the Greeland Sled Dog  may well  vanish as the ice gets ever thinner.
