Inuit Culture

Inuit migrated from various regions in the Artic, building their craft and hunting skills to accommodate the topography and harsh environments they resided in.

Greenland Inuit hunted for whales, seals and other sea mammals for survival.  They used the baleen for thread from the whales, and the sealskin for clothing and covering for their qajaqs.  Not one part of a hunt acquisition was disregarded.

Rope games were developed, not only for entertainment, but to enhance the kinetic awareness and agility for rolling, which was crucial for the Greenland Inuits.

The Inuits were an extremely social community.  They developed various games, dances and songs that were shared and passed along through generations.  For an intriquing website of various games, visit this site and explore!
