There is a lot of vegetation for them to make a good shelter. The shrubs would be good for making fires for next to your shelter. The people could dig a hole to use it a shelter year round. You could use it in the warmer, but still cold months to keep you out of the sun. With the little, but a lot of it, shrubs, they could make weapons like a spear or arrowhead to kill animals. And with the animals that they kill they could turn those into clothing year round. With it being cold all of the time there would be a lot of snow that they could use as water. You could do the same thing with the ice if you melted it. And one last positive is with the younger kids or the adults maby they could have snow fights.
Many people, when they think of Native Americans, will think of dancing and strange rituals, which is not the case with the Inuit Tribe. The Inuit Tribe are located in the far Arctic North. Also known as the Eskimo, the Inuit people have adapted to live in the freezing temperatures. They live by some of the most common ways Native Americans do. They practice not to waste anything they kill and also practice making arts. The Inuit Tribe have many ways to survive in the wild even with the hardships and scarce resources around them (Sontella 5).
The Plains Cree Tribe lived in Canada, north and west of Lake Superior in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Women wore dresses made out of deerskins, Men wore animal skin leggings,a loincloth which is a small piece of cloth or skin worn between the legs and a belt to hold the loin cloth. They did not speak english, their language is called Montagnais. They lived in teepees.
Aboriginal peoples in Canada generally represents people who are the Indigenous habitants of Canada constituting of First Nations, Inuit and Metis (Etowa, Jesty, & Vukic, 2011). The First Nations people are referred to as Indians (status or non-status), the Inuit people traditionally live in northern regions including the Arctic and Subarctic areas and previously referred to as Eskimo while the Metis are Aboriginal people with both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal ancestors as a result of intermarriage with Europeans (Caron-Malenfant, Simon, Guimonnd, Grondin, & Lebel, 2015). Also, urban Aboriginal people are those who migrated to the urban areas in search for better opportunities and employment in the 1960s and 1970s and may include status and
The Canadian native aboriginals are the original indigenous settlers of North Canada in Canada. They are made up of the Inuit, Metis and the First nation. Through archeological evidence old crow flats seem to the earliest known settlement sites for the aboriginals. Other archeological evidence reveals the following characteristics of the Aboriginal culture: ceremonial architecture, permanent settlement, agriculture and complex social hierarchy. A number of treaties and laws have been enacted amongst the First nation and European immigrants throughout Canada. For instance the Aboriginal self-government right was a step to assimilate them in Canadian society. This allows for a chance to manage
The type of homes they lived in was also meant to keep in heat. They lived in Igloo and Sod (oval) houses. The last way in which the Inuit people adapted to their environment culturally is their choice to live in small groups. The small groups existed for several reasons. These reasons include being able to move frequently in order to use food resources. Other reasons include because the food is scarce smaller groups is needed. This resulted in smaller families as well and it made it easier for food to be divided.
The artwork is different and unique. They made artwork of arctic animals, people, spirits. Like, polar bears, the chief, and the gods they believe in. The housing is also different. They live in igloos, tents, and Inuvialuit houses. Igloos are made of ice. Tents are made of wood and animal hide. Also, Inuvialuit houses are made of wood, dirt, and hides. They also ate different foods. The Inuit ate Hooded Seal, Beluga Whale, Walrus, Narwhal, Caribou, Polar Bear, Musk Oxen, Arctic Fox, Arctic Hare, and the Arctic Bird. The Inuit are different.
Firstly, here is a little taste of the Inuit’s history. The people of the arctic are known to be called, “The Eskimo’s” back in the old times, The Inuit people speak and write their traditional Inuktitut language, and they are a group of First Nations people who live throughout the Arctic region in Canada. The Inuk culture seems to be well adapted to their homes in the Arctic. They know how to survive on their traditional land and rely their resources very well. The Inuk women typically spend their days looking after their children, making clothing, working on animal skins, and cooking. The Inuk women have a specific way to do things in their culture, for instance, they make their clothing in a unique way by making each outfit thick enough to survival the cold days, or they would make layers of each clothing so they can keep warm. All pieces of their clothing are essential based on seasons. The Anoraks and pants were likely knee
In the film “Eskimo Fight for Life” the Inuit winter camp has a defined social structure. From generation to generation the roles of men and women remain the same. The most important role for men is to hunt to feed the camp. They hunt seal which is a symbol within the camp because it conveys the meaning of survival. The women are responsible for supplying the camp with the necessary clothing such as fur coats and boots. The women also teach their daughters these skills so that they can make their own clothes and boots. The Inuit camp also has their own language which enables them to communicate with one another. With the use of language, the elders, especially the grandmothers, can tell the children stories. These stories are one way they pass
This is a term that refers to the peoples that live in the Northern regions of Canada, which generally refers to the province of Nunavut. As stated in the definition of the Indian Act, they are “Indians”. The Inuit do not have the system of intermarriage, meaning if indigenous persons were to marry a non-indigenous person they would not lose their status which is the case for all other indigenous people expect Metis.
The Inuit don’t normally use wood for carving. Instead, they use materials like whalebone, stone, soapstone, bone, and ivory. Also, the Inuit live in the northern part of Canada, Alaska, and Greenland. The Haida and Iroquois live in the southern part of Canada. Since the Inuit live in such a cold climate, they layer up and wear tons of clothing to protect them from the harsh environment and cold of the Arctic, but the Iroquois and Haida don’t layer up a ton. In fact, the Haida men wear no clothing during the summer months! See? The Inuit are different from the Haida and Iroquois in many ways.
Obtain Food: Due to the harsh weather they were not able to farm or grow any crops. They mostly lived off of meat from hunting animals such as seals walruses, and whales. They also ate fish and wild berries. To keep their energy up in the long winters they would eat foods with lots of fat in it. When hunting whales the Inuit would prepare by bringing on lots of men in order to capture it. They would attach makeshift balloons to the harpoon so the whale couldn’t get away from them after it was hit with a harpoon. Since a whale is a mammal it needs
The Inuit’s served using weapons and their hands. They hunted these animals Caribou, whales, fish, oxen, seals and even walruses. The Inuit’s hunted with sharp sticks, spears and bow and arrow. The housing was made out of long grass and dirt. The houses were Igloos and an underground barrier. Now you know some facts about the Inuit Tribe.
When taking the time to review the early beginnings of Canadian history through the events that would go onto lead to confederation, it is possible to realize the intent that is found in regards to the founding of the country from being a collection of colonies for the British Empire. This all in all establishes and investigation to the economic, social, political, and environmental events/ideas to go on to understand the nature of the formation of Canada, as well as the influences that would go on to the development of the national identity.
Nanook of the North (Robert J. Flaherty, 1922) is a silent docudrama that was released to demonstrate the way that the Inuit people live in day to day life. To a person in the western world in the 1920’s they would believe that this is how they live, dress and how they survive in day to day situations. In fact, what Flaherty filmed, was scripted and the Inuit family we follow were not actually family. Flaherty also decided to have the Inuit people dressed as they would previously in history, where as they were dressing like western world civilisation in the 1920’s. This could have been due to wanting to make the Inuit’s come across as a new and exotic civilisation, compared to the “ordinary” people.
