Major and minor settlements in the circumpolar Arctic

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Arctic Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
Indigenous settlements in the Arctic. As in the past, today's settlements are usually located in resource-strategic positions, with territoriality and social networks adapted to the movements of reindeer/caribou or the seasonal abundance of sea mammals. Most indigenous settlements are small, consisting of only a handful of people, while others are communities of several thousand people. Notice that many dots simply represent seasonal settlements and camps and not established communities.
