The Inuit ate most of their food raw
because they had little or no wood for a fire.
The oil lamp was used sometimes for
cooking but it took a long time to cook anything.The Inuit
ate little food in a meal, but they ate often.
Walrus liver and the layer of fat from
the white whale (called blubber) was enjoyed by the Inuit.
Blubber was thought of as a treat for Inuit
They also enjoyed eating the food that
was left over in a dead caribou's stomach and a soup made of
hot water and seal blood.
They hunted seal by sneaking up quietly
and harpooning it.
They caught seal in the water by dropping
a bone tied to leather in the water. They then waited until
the bone moved and then they harpooned it.
They caught walrus by going in their
kayaks and harpooning them.
They caught land animals by trapping them
and throwing spears at the animals.
