Inuit People

Welcome to your learning resource.



The Inuit People, commonly known as Eskimos, have inhabited some of the coldest regions of North America for generations.

They live in the northernmost areas of Alaska, Siberia, Greenland and Canada, and hunt and fish for their food.

Because of the extreme temperatures of the Arctic tundra, the Inuit people have had to find resourceful ways to shelter themselves against the elements. During the winter they live in homes made entirely out of snow, called “Igloos”, and in the summer they make huts out of animal skins and driftwood.

We hope you enjoy learning about them!
