Linked Lifestyles


Bai Ying, director of Earthpulse, enthusiastically pulls out stamps and postcards of Eskimos and nordic european countries. Rummages through his desk for books and photos of native American Indians. Retrieves from bookcases birchbark items from Russia. All these people live in the same latitudinal band as the Oronchen, and over the years have developed lifestyles to cope with similar challenges of living in such a harsh environment. While each of their traditional way of living have distinctions, they also show fascinating similarities, arising from the fact that their environment has presented to them the same materials in their living habitat. Appears nature has circumnavigated the Earth to link these people together.
