      The Inuit people are an indigenous people native to the Arctic regions of North America, as well as parts of Greenland. Inuit settlements can also be found in regions of Russia. The term “Inuit” is actually a blanket term for several distinct cultures, including the Yupik, Inupiat, and Aleut. The Inuit, or Eskimo, are an aboriginal people who make their home in the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions of Siberia and North America. The word "Eskimo" was bestowed upon these hardy, resourceful hunters by their neighbors, the Algonquin Indians of eastern Canada.

      In late August , Natan Obed, president of the national Inuit representational organization Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, joined Catherine McKenna, the minister of environment and climate change, on her visit to the Nunatsiavut region of northern Labrador and Torngat Mountains National , who grew up in Nain, the administrative capital of the Labrador Inuit region, helped tour .   The Inuit people of northern Canada provide an example of a traditional economy. For thousands of years, Inuit parents have taught their children the survival skills needed to survive in the Arctic Circle's severe climate. Students will research the Inuit economy and compare and contrast it with the United States' market economy.

    On land, the Inuit used sled dogs. The dogs used were huskies and wolves. The sled was made up of bones, wood and baleen. The Inuits traded very little and prefered to share everything. To wrap up, the Inuits used kayaks and sled dogs, they also prefered to share rather then sharing. Tim and Moby head north to explore the unique culture of the Inuit! You’ll learn why the Arctic is such a tough place to live, how the Inuit cope with the environment north of the tree line, and why hunting plays such a big role in their culture. Brr!
