Yes, they are adapted to it. My facetious remark came from my not
being adapted to it. The Northern people can survive in desolate
winter conditions. They've taken from our society what suits them:
snowmobiles, outboard motors, rifles. Those that do well have
taken nothing else. Those that have tried to adapt to our way
of life have become decimated. The Northern community of Resolute
Bay has a phenomenal rate of teen suicide and substance abuse -
mostly gasoline and glue sniffing.

Further West, the Amerinds of the Alutien (sp?) islands, have stayed
reasonably clear of Western culture and have a very civilized, if
not advanced, society.
