What is this?


"The Inuit concept of nallik- (or naklik), which can be glossed, roughly, as 'nurturant affection', is a core value in Inuit culture. (...)

Nallik- behaviour is, theoretically, antithetical to any form of aggression. Physical attack, verbal unkindness or criticism, even unexpressed hostile thoughts are opposed to nallik-. Consequently, nallik- behaviour defines a good person."
