i somehow never saw this thread before or i would've done this long ago, but uh weirdly enough, i actually do need to know that specific thing for my writey project. is this something you have some good sources you could link me on? i generally enjoy doing research, but i've been coming up against a series of brick walls in trying to write my fictional-world not-exactly-sami reindeer herders, because apparently what little history about equivalent cultures didn't get erased or forgotten is written in finnish. basically, i've got a tribe of reindeer herders who send a bunch of folks down to the sea to fish in the summers. their fishing camp got hit by raiders, everybody died, all the food got taken and the boats stolen or burned. they still have their reindeer, but they're fresh out of able-bodied men aside from one alcoholic shaman and a few teenagers, and they pretty much know unless they get real lucky somehow they're going to slowly starve over the next few years. what i need to research is what they do to try to stave that off. but i can't seem to find a starting point. all my search terms lead me in wrong directions. and of course, i'm the adhd poster child and i get sucked down every rabbit hole i find, so even wrong directions can eat an entire afternoon. so do you think you could find me some kind of starting point for like... experiential, practical, day-to-day, What Did They Actually Do With Their Time information about arctic cultures fighting famine?
