Does the OP think that the Indians live in teepees and hunt deer and buffalo for food? Dude they go into their heated houses when it gets cold and they shop at the grocery store for food.
Maybe some Amazon or some African tribes still hunt and a percentage of the Adirondacks but the rest of us go to markets or in developed countries to the grocery stores.

There are still some places in Alaska where it is close to subsistence and you do have to lay in a sufficient store of food because you don't have, can't count on regular supplies through the winter months. As such it is still very important to be tied in to the land and be able to read it.
The planet's northern magnetic pole is drifting slowly but steadily towards Russia -- and it's throwing off planes in Florida.
Tampa International Airport was forced to readjust its runways Thursday to account for the movement of the Earth's magnetic fields, information that pilots rely upon to navigate planes. Thanks to the fluctuations in the force, the airport has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to change taxiway signs to account for the shift, the Federal Aviation Administration said.
"The Earth's poles are changing constantly, and when they change more than three degrees, that can affect runway numbering," Bergen said.
While rejiggering the runways is a very extreme event, the fields are constantly in flux and constantly being remapped, explained Lorne McKee, a scientist with the geomagnetism division of Natural Resources Canada.
"Since the fields change relatively slowly, they're marked out at 10 degree increments," he explained. The field has swung from approximately 10 degrees east in the late 16th century to 25 degrees west in the early 19th century -- before returning to a current value of about 3 degrees west.
the north pole is not going to move and the south pole just sit there right??

If they move together is that not the axis moving???
Or are we talking full pole reversal that has not occurred in 780,000 years
A brief complete reversal, known as the Laschamp event, occurred only 41,000 years ago during the last glacial period.

I thought the pole was part of the axis isnt it?? The north pole is not going to move and the south pole just sit there right?? I did not finish high school so I am going to plead ignorance on this. Would someone educate me please??
There are plenty of credible valid links that show that the 9.0 earthquake in Japan in March 2011 moved the earths axis by a few degrees. This isn't some doom porn nonsense. This actually happened
