Transcript of The Inuit and their technology

The Inuit and their technology By: Daniel Kim #11 Introduction The Inuit lived in the freezing climates of the arctic region for hundereds of years. Tools The End. Thanks for watching :) Inukshuk used to
navigate around
the Arctic Used a variety of resources
for tools such as hides, stone, wood, and more http://kevinrestivo.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/inukshuk.jpg Transportation Snowshoes used for
travelling across deep
snow, prevents from getting
stuck in the snow http://www.glenbow.org/images/img-col-otherppl-hig-3.jpg Dog sleds used for very fast travel across snow and ice. Made travelling for the Inuit much easier Kayaks used for
transport across
water during the summer
Umiaks were also used to transport across water, it works equivalently like a kayak http://www.glenbow.org/images/img-col-otherppl-hig-3.jpg Shelter and other architecture The igloo was usually a
temporary shelter for the
Inuit. The igloo was mostly used during travel, because the snow that can be used for building is everywhere http://historyfacebook.wikispaces.com/file/view/Igloo.jpg/33773673/Igloo.jpg Sod-covered housing was used
during the summer, when there
was more vegetation Whale oil lamps used
to brighten up an igloo
inside and outside Knew special skills
to benefit their society
Conclusion In conclusion, the Inuit
have created spectacular tools and
shelters to survive and thrive in
the Arctic region. They are very outstanding to exist in such an extreme climate, and that the Inuit
tribe is amazing. Bibliography/Works cited Ipellie/Alootook/MacDonald/David/The Inuit Thought of it/Arnick Press LTD/Richmond Hill Ontario/2007 Kalman/Bobbie/Living in the Far North/Crabtree Publishing Company/2001

quite small and could
only hold one person Other kayaks were
much larger and could
hold several people An igloo was built by forming blocks of snow, and stacking them in a spiral direction, forming a dome. Then, a trench was dug underneath the igloo to get in. The shape was effective for insulation Dog sleds were commonly used
amonsgt the Inuit tribe. Kayaks were often made of wood, skin, and bones. Map of region The Inuit resided in parts of the Arctic region. http://www.ecokids.ca/pub/eco_info/topics/first_nations_inuit/assets/images/canada_map.gif
