Can you Imagine?

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Wed Feb 24, 2016 6:14 am

The people of the far north here are very different from those of us who live on the coast and on the southern border of Canada. Can you imagine living where you needed your body warmth to heat your living space?

The Inuit and all others of the far north live extreme lives. They're quite short little people and one can see the direct connection to Asian peoples. Their skills in some areas are very advanced as they don't get a second chance.

An interesting trivia tidbit re: dental. The Eskimos now known as Inuit and other tribes I can't spell ALL had way back when virtually cavity free big straight teeth. With the introduction of westernized foods they start to experience crooked teeth and cavities. Makes ya wonder.

OMG H HERE it is a HUGE faux pas if you erroneously incorrectly refer to a First Nations or Inuit or Aleut or Aboriginal or Native American by an incorrect term.
