The type of bond they have with their eco-system is one that the world needs to learn about and remember. They embrace their rugged terrain, utilizing trained reindeer and wolves. Golden eagle are taught to hunt for their clan. This is better than any movie, it’s a throwback to the past that is almost unbelievable to witness.
