Native Peoples of the Arctic
From the Series North American Indian Nations
Long before Europeans explored the lands and waters above the Arctic Circle, several Inuit groups lived in this harsh, snowy landscape. They spoke different languages and developed unique ways to thrive in the ice and snow. These include making homes from whalebones and animals skins and hunting seals with spears through holes in the ice.
Many Inuit still live in the Arctic. While many aspects of Arctic life have changed, the Inuit are working to preserve their traditional practices and languages. Find out more about the history and culture of the Inuit.
