Inuit: Living Off the Land

Inuit is a broad term used for Indigenous Peoples of the Artic that include Alaska, Canada, and Greenland. For thousands of years the Inuit Peoples have used natural resources to survive the harsh Northern Artic regions they inhibit. Iuit people use fish, sea mammals, birds and eggs as their means of survival. They believe in respecting the land and ocean that gives them these resources. Therefore they use all parts of the animals to eat, make tools, parkas, blankets, and boats. Recently hunting bans have been placed on some of the anmals they hunt and it is threatening their culture and way of life.
