A Text

Culture

Located on an arctic island off the southwest coast of Greenland. Relied heavily on trade and ocean/fishing (sustenance & resources). Believed in a god who symbolized love and marriage, who Mirro worshipped and worked under. Their culture wasn’t very androcentric, but were otherwise lawless to an extent because certain citizens were able to murder Mirro with little to no halting forces or repercussions. They were similar to the Egyptians in their belief that royalty should be born into royalty, but also were superstitious because she was infertile.
