Location

Location

*located in the Arctic

*Their tribe stretches from Alaska and the islands of the Bering Sea, across Canada to the coast of Greenland, and the tip of Russia

*They live along the sea


Geography and climate

Geography and Climate

*For most of the year the land is covered in snow and the seas are frozen

*This land is considered snow-covered plains, Grasslands (tundra), and some forests

*The land is frozen except for 3 months of the year. Spring arrives in March and April. By May, the snow melts but by October, the first heavy snowfalls begin.

*Temperatures can fall to 50 degrees below zero


Plants

plants

  • The land is not suitable for farming because it is frozen.

  • The Inuit did not grow crops because it was too cold.

  • The Inuit hunted, fished, trapped, and gathered berries


Animals

Animals

  • The Inuit relied on hunting and fishing for food.

  • From the sea, they hunted seals, whales, and fished using harpoons.

  • From the land, they hunted caribou and polar bears.

  • Much of what they ate was raw.

  • Oil from sea mammals, especially whales, gave the Inuit fuel for cooking and for oil lamps.

  • Tools were made from bones.


Clothing

Clothing

  • The Inuit used animal skins and fur to make their clothing.

  • Shirts were made of bird skin.

  • Pants and coats were made from animal fur.

  • They wore mittens and boots called kamiks.


Shelter

Shelter

  • The Inuit word for house is iglu.

  • What we call an igloo is an igluviak or snowhouse to them.

  • Most snowhouses were temporary shelters, used while the Inuit where hunting by the sea.

  • The snow blocks were cut with a large knife or saw.

  • In many areas in Canada, children take igloo building lessons.

  • When they weren’t hunting by the sea, they lived in turf houses.
