the past, the Inuit hunted, caught or gathered all their food. They used spears
they made themselves to catch the fish. The Inuit killed their food and ate
it raw. Blubber or fat from some Arctic animals was like a treat to them. The
Inuit made the spears out of whalebone.
The Inuit ate fish, caribou, whale and sometimes fox. They hunted a lot of their time. Sometimes they ate polar bears. Seal are very tasty according to the Inuit. They liked seal liver very much. To hunt seal, the hunter had to look like a seal in order to sneak up on the animal. To hunt a polar bear, you had to be as strong as one and be very quiet and patient.
Now Inuit have their own stoves and use many of the same utensils as we do. They now have refrigerators to store food instead of hiding it in the snow. They still eat some of the same things they used to like caribou, seals, whales and fish but can now buy other foods from stores in their communities. They also still make holes in the ice to fish for Arctic char with spears.
the past, if they wanted to cook the meat, the hunter had a tool that included
a bow-drill and piece of driftwood. The man would rub the two pieces together
and it would make heat. Then some dried moss or grass was then ignited. The
hunter would then give this small fire to his wife and she would put it in a
dead bird's body full of dried grass and it make embers that she could keep
and take with them when they travelled. She could put some of the embers under
driftwood, place the meat on top and cook it. Sometimes the meat was boiled
in melted snow over the seal oil lamp called the kudluk.
