Inuits need cash for freezers in warming Arctic

Inuit communities need funds to adapt to climate change in the Arctic, including measures to build communal deep freezers to store game, an Inuit leader said on Friday.

The Inuit, the indigenous people of Greenland, Canada, Alaska and Russia, have traditionally hunted for Arctic species from seal to polar bear, whale to caribou.
The Inuit Circumpolar Council's (ICC) Violet Ford says she sees climate changes "on a daily basis".
Ms Ford, who was born and raised in the Inuit community of Makkovik, says more funds are needed for adaptation and response to climate change in the Arctic.
"That should also be going to the Inuit communities as a response to climate change," she said.
"We need infrastructure. We want community deep freezers if the hunting patterns change so much that we can only go hunting a few times a year." Read more.
