The Arctic Peoples

The Arctic Peoples

The peoples who settled in the Arctic lived in an area of frigid temperatures. The hostile cold created a condition in the ground known as permafrost. This permafrost was a layer of ice underground that never melted. This meant that farming the land was impossible.

 

Arctic Peoples

These peoples survived by hunting seals, whales, bears, sea birds, and other animals. Because resources were scarce, they learned to make use of every part of the animals they hunted. The meat and fat could be used as food, while the bones could be used to build huts, and skins could be used to create warm clothing.
