Uummannaq, situated on the west coast of Greenland, has been inhabited for over 4500 years by Inuits from the American Continent whose traditional hunting and fishing practices are the foundation of the industry here. Traditional practices include using dog sleds as transport, seal hunting using spears and kayaks, traditional ice fishing with hand-held reels, and whale hunting.
