The physical environment of the Arctic region did affect the culture of the Inuit people. The Inuit lived in igloos made of ice, as that was the building material available. The cold climate and lack of plant life fostered an attitude of wasting nothing. It also forced the Inuit to develop alternative fuel sources such as seal blubber, and to have a diet of only meat, eaten raw. The Inuit also dressed in layered caribou skin parkas to survive in the cold weather. Overall, the severe arctic climate influenced every aspect of Inuit life.
