Aasivissuit - Nipisat
Aasivissuit-Nipisat. Inuit Hunting Ground between Ice and Sea, is a cultural landscape in West Greenland.
The inscribed area includes 7 key locations along annual migration routes from coast to inland in summer and then back again in late autumn. They show the interdependence between humans and their natural environment over time. The sites consist of both archaeological sites and settlements that are still in use. This landscape was settled about 4,200 years ago, with (Paleo-)Inuit sustaining themselves by marine and terrestrial hunting.
