angakoq...
Greenland

Kalaallit Nunaat is the Inuit name for Greenland.

Angakoq is Inuit for shaman, medicine-man, witch-doctor - yet none of these words embrace the concept of a person who carries on the spirit of the community.

The angakoq is the storyteller - ensuring the continuity of the community through remembering, reciting and passing down the stories from one generation to the next.
