What is Eskimo life like?


Eskimo life may sound tiresome and rough for most Americans but the people of the Tundra take pride in the lives they live and their ability to provide for themselves. Though many Eskimos live a modern life with constructed dwellings, they still hunt and fish for food and follow many customs that are traditional to Eskimo history and culture. Most roads in communities are not paved and snowmobiles are a common form of transportation. They make their own clothing such as parkas, mittens, gloves and even boots from caribou hide. Culture and customs remain traditional with men hunting for food and women caring for the children and making clothing.
