Transcript of Inuit

In the summer they would live in
with drift wood and whale bone frames and animal hide stretched over
By: Maya, Markie, and Devon
Life Style
In the winter they would use igloos as permanent or temporary homes. Igloos were made of ice and snow bricks compacted in to a half circle.
Whales(blubber, oil, meat, and bones) fish, walruses, animal hide, berries, roots, caribou, polar bear, SNOW, stones and drift wood.
Women took care of children, sewed, cleaned food, and cooked meals.
Some men were fishermen. But men who could be away from camp for several days would be expected to know how to cook and sew.

The inuit lived together as extended families. The eldest male in the family was thought to be the wisest, but he was not the leader. Families would make decisions together.
Interesting information
The nickname "Eskimo" is
an offensive. In the United States the nickname Eskimo was used to describe both the inuit and the Yupik, or indians of the North. Also the winter time was a period for the village to come together, men gathered in the common houses called "kashims" or"karigi", also used for dancing.
Inuit Beliefs

The Inuit Believed that the northern lights were their deceased ancestors. They believed when you whistled at the northern lights, the lights would decapitate your head.
The inuit had a freezing climate with harsh weather conditions.
Inuit mythology
The inuit believed in a shape shifter creature called a Ijiraat. They believed the Ijiraat could shape shift into anything.
The Ijiraat could pass for any thing, but they couldn't disguise their red eyes. Most people thought the Ijiraat was evil, but some think that they were miss understood. If you would encounter a Ijiraat you would soon forget the details of the incident, and suffer memory loss.
The inuit lived in the Artic/Subartic cultural regions.
Inuit people believed that humans
are apart of the environment, not
separate from it, and that all living
creatures are equal and deserve
respect. They made sure they took
care of the environment in everything
they did. For example, when they hunted,
they didn't kill anymore than they needed.
Also they didn't waste any part of the
animal so that their would be plenty of
wild life for the future.
Inuit art
The Inuit use everything they find. That includes stones. The Inuit are known for living in the Artic, and they are also known for their stone art.
