Inuit Culture

Lianne Macwatt is originally from the North West Territories. She is Inuit. She shared with us the uniqueness of living in the north where different tools and clothing are needed to survive.

Inuit are resourceful. They use all things from their land and from the animals. Lianne had artifacts that we could see and touch. There were bones made into needles, caribou sinew into thread, willow branches into snowshoes, drift wood into sunglasses, wolf pelts into mittens, muskrat into pillows, moose antlers into carving tools and sheep horns into fishing hooks. What a display of creativity. We appreciate Lianne bringing in these items, made and used by her family, for us to explore.
