About This Book
The Inuit are an Arctic people who live near Canada's Hudson Bay. This book explores the history and culture of the Inuit — the foods they ate, the type of homes they lived in, and the ceremonies and traditions they practiced. It also discusses what life is like for the Inuit today.
An excellent introduction to Native American studies, Indians of the Americas weaves together the people, culture, traditions, crafts, food, history, and struggle for survival of some of the first groups to call America home.
Fascinating and comprehensive, each book in the series draws from primary source materials as well as historical archives to address the topics most frequently covered in social studies and American history curricula.
