Satisfactory Essays
The first Inuit people that lived in North America used dogs to travel around to the places they needed to go. The dogs not only helped the Inuit people travel, but they also help with hunting. The dogs were brave to scare off bears and other threatening animals. When an Inuit person used their feet to travel they put little spikes on the bottom of their boots to get better grip on the ice. The Inuit people used and made two different boats, the kayak and the umiak. Kayaks are small lightweight boats that the Inuit people used for hunting, which could fit one person in wood frame boat covered with sealskin. They were built to be lightweight so they were easy to maneuver in the water. Sealskin skirts were made to keep the water out of the boat.
