Traditionally, the Inuit or Eskimo people have rules or notions that compare to the Western concept of laws. There are three types: things to do, things to avoid, and things to follow.

Techniques used by such a person include invocations, incantations, chanting of songs, weatherwork, spiritual protection, etc.
