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 article “the inuit paradox” starts off with an Inupiat woman describing the most common foods that she consumed growing up in an Inuit community in which foraging is necessary for survival. She describes that the traditional Inuit diet focused primarily on meat that was foraged from the environment.
The Inuit people are also known as Eskimos. They have lived in the Artic area; the Tundra, where the climate is cold and too severe for trees to grow, for over a thousand years. Over the thousands of years living in the Artic environment, the Inuit people have adapted culturally and biologically. Among the biological adaptations, their bodies altered permitting them to adapt to the environment in five ways. In addition to biological adaptations, the Inuit people also adapted culturally, changing how they dressed, the type of home they lived in, and the number of individuals in their groups.
A culture is known to be a group of people, usually a group of First Nations people who share the same knowledge, beliefs, values, languages, experiences, etc. amongst each other as a community. Those cultural knowledge and activities continue to be passed down to younger generations as time goes on. First Nations cultures are very important to many First Nations people because it is like the backbone to not only their future but their future generations as well. Just like the Inuit people who cherish their own people and culture. (NEED REFERENCE)
The Canadian Arctic are known as the Inuit, which they are commonly known as Eskimos.

1.The Inuits have a strong bond because...They learn from the land to be patiant, to be brave,and to learn character. Which gives them a common bond of friendship. The viedeo gets to 16 minutes and 48 seconds a Inuit woman says “you are taught to be patiant, to be taught character.” This statement is directly related to the claim that I have made.

The Inuit People The word Eskimo is not a proper Eskimo word. It means "eaters of raw meat" and was used by the Algonquin Indians of eastern Canada for their neighbours who wore animal-skin clothing and were ruthless hunters. The name
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 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.
For many of years animal activists have been trying to put a stop to all animal hunting, abuse, using animals for supplies. The problem with doing this is that it may effect a large amount of people who live off of these animals, in particularly the seal. The Canadian Inuit is a large group of people about 46,000 people as an estimation, that use seals as a multi source. The Canadian Inuit use the seal for a source of cash through fur sales, they used the seal for meat, and once used seal for oil lamps. In 1980 animal rights activists got their way and made it so that seal hunting was no longer legal. This affected thousands of Canadian Inuit who lived in small arctic hamlets who lived off of seal. The question is who is better off the Canadian Inuit, or the animals rights activists?
According to the text, culture refers to the ways of acting and thinking, as well as the material objects that in harmony form a people’s way of life *. The physical environment of the Artic strongly influences the culture surrounding the Inuit people, mirroring a hunter and gathers’ society, as shown in the film, Eskimo Fight for Life.
The Inuit and Aleut tribes lived in the inhospitable frozen deserts of present-day Alaska, Canada, and Greenland near the Arctic Circle. Both tribes adopted similar ways of life in this harsh climate. Natives lived in dome shaped homes made of sod, timber, or even ice blocks if they lived in
The Colonial Americans came to the New World in search of gold, silver, land, better opportunities, and most importantly they desired religious freedom. Colonial Americans weren’t the only people practicing religion. Even before the exploration of America, the Native Americans who were already residents of the land had begun in their own religious practices, traditions, and creating their own cultures. In all religious beliefs there is a divine creator or creators and we know this through studying the writings of different social groups. The creators in each religion may have different characteristics, roles, and relationships with humankind, but they all play an essential role in shaping the culture and beliefs of a person or a whole society.
