  2. 2. Victor Olerskiy The livelihoods of many of the in­ digenous people of the Arctic have depended on being able to hunt animals for many thousands of years.

For may indige­ nous Arctic people today, hunting is still an essential part of life, often because other food sources are too expensive or unavailable. There are an estimated 40 or more different ethnic groups indigenous to the Arctic, many of which are not recognised as separate indigenous populations in official statistics. These include the Inuit people of Alaska, Canada and Greenland, the Saami people of Norway, Finland and Sweden, and the Chukchi peo­ ple of Russia, among others.
