People at the Poles::
The Human Dimension
We mostly think of the polar regions as completely uninhabited. Yet the Arctic is home to four million people, many of whom are indigenous, while thousands of scientists do research in Antarctica every year. Learn more about the lives of Sami reindeer herders, Inuvialuit drum dancers in Canada, Russian children growing up on the tundra, and Icelandic strongmen in the videos below. If that wasn't enough, other films also showcase a quirky shrimp photographer in Alaska, the native cuisine of Greenland, and what day-to-day life is like as an Antarctic scientist.
