Images from Shutterstock.com Did They have a Legacy? We are going to start talking about the Inuit if they met the criteria of "greatness" for having a legacy. We'll start with modern days and the days in the Inuit. In the Arctic, the Inuit lived in igloos that were made out of ice blocks. The walls, the ceiling, and the floor were are all made out of ice and snow. The temperature in there was or above freezing cold. In the Summer, they made tents out of animal skin which were pretty easy to put up. Each family lived in it's own tent. Now modern days, nobody in this world live in igloos or tents made out of animal skin. Only in Antarctica, they live in igloos. But nowadays, we have houses, buildings, big apartments, and big offices, all made out of bricks, or cement. The ceilings are made out of plaster. The floors can be made out of wood, and marble (rock). The walls are made out of gypsum board. So, the Inuit did not make a legacy on shelter. Now we are going to talk about the transportation and architecture of the Inuit and compare them to now modern days. For transportation on land,the Inuit used a sled with a dog team to travel over the land in the past usually on snow. Nowadays, they still do use the dog teams but now, snowmobiles are more popular. The snowmobile is faster than the dog team, but some people think that the dog team is better because dogs do not run out of fuel. On water, They used to use kayaks to get around . Kayaks are a type of boat that has room for only one person. They were made by hand from driftwood and seal skins. Nowadays, in the London olympics, people do Kayak racing on water for medals. The Inuit did make a legacy on transportation because of the invention of the Kayak. The Inuit architecture are still used today.The earliest examples of Inuit art are delicate carvings made from bone, ivory, or antler. These carvings are in the shapes of faces, figures, and birds. They are really famous type of art that the Inuit have left behind. So the Inuit did have a pretty good lasting contribution and legacy overtime. They met the criteria of "greatness" for legacy. Were the people happy, Safe, and Satisfied? We will start talking about the Inuit if they met the criteria for "did they create a solution to any solutions they encountered" for greatness. We will start with the Inuit and suicide. Suicide was a very big problem that they encountered. Nowadays, they still struggle with the same problem. But now, the rate of suicide has increased even more. So the Inuit did not solve any problems they encountered and did not meet the criteria. Did they create a solution to any problems they encountered? Hello, today, I am going to be talking all about the Inuit, and you will be seeing if the Inuit were great or not.The Inuit, are an aboriginal people who make their home in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Siberia and North America. Intro The Inuit We will be talking about the people of the Inuit if if they met the criteria of "the people were happy and safe". They were happy, safe, and satisfied because they all believed that all of nature had a spirit. They believed that the spirits helped them by letting them know when bad weather was coming. So they were satisfied, and happy with what they believed. The Inuit were safe because no one would ever struggle for food or clothing, because for practically everything they needed, was by depending on the environment. They all got food and clothing from the environment (animals). Even for their shelter, they used ice blocks for igloos, and animal skin for tents. They were all safe, happy, and satisfied with what they had. They did meet the criteria. Were the Inuit united and worked together cooperatively? We will start now with the Inuit if "they were united and worked together cooperatively" with each other. They were united and worked together as a group when they go out hunting. On boats, on land, the people were always together. They worked together on building igloos, and tents, and clothes. Yes, the Inuit really did work together cooperatively very well. They would always be in groups. They did meet the criteria really well. Conclusion So the Inuit did meet the criteria pretty well. They weren't failures that much at all. The only part they needed to improve was them solving problems that they encountered. Now this is the end. I hope you liked this talk and learned from it. =)
