Ehrlich's expedition, supported by the National Geographic Society, is undertaken to study what remains of these cultures, specifically the similarities and differences between them including: hunting traditions, shamanic and ceremonial practices, languages and legends - the ways in which they have survived, or have been assimilated, and how they are adapting to the impact of climate change in their ice-age cultures. Ehrlich is fascinated by what she calls the ecology of culture - the ways in which the human presence of indigenous Arctic people is intricately interwoven with land, rock, river, sea, and ice. This title paints human-caused climate change as a mirror of the culture abuse first peoples have been suffering for 250 years.
