Not close to nature, you are in it!
Angmagssalikkerne are a very lively people, gifted with imagination, they are alert, clever and know how to use things that they came into possession of. They are intrusive, as they had to examine and feel everything, but also flattering, which admittedly often manifested itself in the desire to slander others for us. They are polite, hospitable. Indulgent and docile in their behavior towards each other

History and nature
Amulet of raven claw and head, tied together by a leather strap, 23 cm long and collected in Ammassalik in 1902. In the use of amulets, which were to provide magical protection and support, the importance of boys as future hunters was emphasized. Boys were given amulets to turn them into skilled kayakers, skilled sled drivers or skilled at hitting targets and telling stories. The girls were also given - albeit fewer - amulets, which were to help turn a girl into a skilled seamstress or a good mother.
