Thanks for the links, will watch as soon as I can.
I'm dying to see if there is anyone in the footage who looks older than 30 :-D
(if that lost you, there's a thread at the moment where someone said "Eskimos don't live over 30"!
I kid you not, not even that they didn't in prehistoric times..)
If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.
I've watched the Eskimo clip - absolutely fascinating! Couldn't help thinking how much extra meat they have to catch to feed those dogs though! I'd have loved to see if they ate caribou brain, liver, kidneys etc or just the joints? Certainly, they were taking the shoulder, leg etc back to eat. Which refutes the comments I've often read that primitive peoples ate the offal and fat and left the lean meat for the animals. I never could believe that....
If you guys are able to, purchase the Human Planet series, it's fascinating as well and from what I've seen it focuses mostly on cultures that are removed from mainstream society. They had another Eskimo father/son team catch some type of whale to feed their dogs. It was HUGE, but only feeds the dogs for a couple of weeks apparently.
I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.
Wonderful. From that video I found the "Nanook of the North" set of videos, taken a generation earlier. But by the time both films were done, unfortunately, the natives were already trading for grain-based foods, and well, we know the rest of the sad story. The Inuits are also newly plagued with Myopia - probably being in the classroom all day and not out hunting with the adults like the old days. Very sad - all the vestiges of Grok civilizations being obliterated and the people who weren't wiped out by the obvious diseases are now slowly dying from the food-related diseases and the welfare-entrapment of "superior" people.
