The Inuit have inhabited the Arctic regions in Russia, Alaska (USA), Canada and Greenland for thousands of years by living a subsistence lifestyle and relying on the resources available in their local environment. During the mid eighteenth century, people from foreign cultures began to explore the areas inhabited by Inuit for the first time and the cultural values of the Inuit became increasingly influenced by new ideas and technologies. However, the Inuit have been able to preserve some of their environmental values and implement them in modem land management throughout the Arctic.
