Inuit used a sled with a dog team to travel over the land in the past. They still
do use the dog teams but now snowmobiles are more popular. The snowmobile is faster
than the dog team, but some people think that the dog team is better because dogs
do not run out of fuel.
They used to use kayaks to move on water. Kayaks are a type of boat that has room
for only one person. They were made by hand from driftwood and sealskins. The
hunter would use a two-ended paddle to steer the boat and hunt whales or swimming
caribou as they crossed the rivers.
Inuit people use kayaks, which can only hold one person, and an umiak, which can
hold ten or maybe more people. An umiak was an open boat used to move people and
belongings rather than for hunting. If I were a Inuit girl, I would rather have
a dog sled more than a ski-doo because a ski-doo will run out of fuel and a dog
sled will not.
Inuit in the past used dog sleds to get around. Now they use snowmobiles, airplanes
and boats to get things and go to different places. Dog sleds were just dogs to
pull a sled they sit on with their belongings. They have to travel across snow
and ice. Some of the Inuit still use dog sleds but not as much as they used to
do. The kayak was a one-man boat that they used to travel over water in spring
and summer to hunt.
