3: Did you know Inuit means people? Geographical Location and map | The Inuit, also known as Eskimos or Eaters of Raw Meat, live in NUNAVUT, QUEBEC, ALASKA, NORTHERN CANADA, and GREENLAND. This is called the Northern Polar region. The Polar Region is an ice desert; the winters are long, dark and very cold. The ground is frozen for most of the year. In conclusion, life for the Inuit was hard.
4: Clothing | The Inuit made their clothing by hand. The women learned how to sew in their childhood. When women got married, they took with them two of their most prized possessions, their ULU and their sewing kits. In their sewing kits there were sinews from the caribou’s back and legs that served as thread. Needles were made of ivory or the hard wing or leg of caribous. Also, the caribou’s hair was short and strong which was good for making Inuit clothing. The Inuit killed only the number of animals needed to outfit their families. In conclusion, caribou was a good material to make clothing for the Inuit.

In conclusion, the Inuit homes were built out of different materials for each season.
