The Inuit devote great respect to the polar bear (Nanuq), due to its power, beauty and ingenuity. It is a symbol of patience and determination, essential qualities required to survive the harsh, arctic life. The Inuit learned their hunting techniques from the bear, as well as the manner in which they organize their living space.
