The religion of the inuit was animism.The inuit beliefs that all non-living and living thing (even people) had a spirit. When the spirit died, then it continued on in the spirit world.The only people who had enough power to control the spirits were the powerful religious leader called the Shamans or Angakoks.Shamans used charms and dance as a mean to communicate with the spirit wold. Shamans also wore carved mask- mostly representing animals-while performing their rituals. it was believed that masks had powers that enabled them to communicate with the spirits. To appease the spirits the Shamans would make recommendations. They would suggest offering gifts to the spirits moving away and sometimes would fine the person for breaking the rules and angering the spirits.
