Culture > The past and the present on Kitsissunnguit


Today, the islands are uninhabited. But it has not always been that way. Right up until the 1950s, the locals used the islands as a summer settlement and a starting point for hunting. Many hunting families have lived here for several months a year, because the sea around Kitsissunnguit is teeming with life.
