 They traveled with:

  • dogsled
  • kayak
  • umiak
  • skis
  • by foot
  • skidoo
  • snowshoe

The Inuit traveled over ice, snow, water and land. In the winter they used a dogsled to travel over the ice and snow. The sleds they used were called plank sleds and frame sleds. The plank sled looked like a long ladder. It was made of two runners with cross pieces between them. The frame sled had a basket frame sitting on two runners. The sleds were made of wood, whale jaw bones, frozen animal skins and even frozen meat. Dogs were used to pull the sled. The dogs were attached so they could spread out while running.
