Inuit living in the Arctic should be familiar to everyone, some people may feel confused, they are always in such a low temperature environment, really suitable for survival?
The fact is that they do not feel very cold, they have lived in the Arctic for a long time, and already have a way of life adapted to the local climate. Just like the people living in the tropics, they also have the habit of living against the heat.
Their houses are made of ice blocks, most of which are presented as semicircular spheres, and the materials of the house are all ice blocks. Before building the house, people first pile up the required ice blocks to the right size, placed on the ground molding, and in a short time, you can start using.
People usually leave a small import and export in the side of the round house, the small mouth, both to ensure that there is sufficient air can come in, but also to avoid the indoor warm air out. The house made of ice not only will not be cold, but also can play a role in keeping warm.
In the house, they will make a fire to warm and make food, but not because of the presence of fire and the ice melting. The heat generated by the campfire is able to rise to the roof and the door is relatively short, which ensures that the heat will not easily escape.
In order to withstand the cold, Inuit clothes are made of animal skins with good warmth. Most of them are made of brown color, which is more resistant to dirt and does not need to be washed frequently, and they do not need to use chemical dyes, so the warmth and environmental friendliness are guaranteed.
In the Arctic region, there will also often be fierce animals similar to bears, brown coats and animal fur color is more similar, but also to avoid attracting their attention, to ensure the safety of humans. In addition to clothing, Inuit shoes are also made of animal skins, and the bottom must be non-slip, so that it is easier to move.
The Inuit hunted wild animals for food and liked to eat whale, bear meat and other high-protein foods, which was one of the reasons they could withstand the cold. They did not go out hunting every day and brought back rabbits, birds and fish that could save for a long time in the low temperature.
In the winter piled with snow, their main means of transport for the sled, some have sled dogs as "car driver", the use of sleds in addition to ensure that people's physical strength, but also to prevent slippery. In the summer, they travel mainly by foot, and there are few modern means of transportation in that region.
Many people may be curious about the life of the Inuit, they want to go there to try to live, but this is also a high challenge task, not everyone can withstand that relatively primitive life, besides, the local residents also live a peaceful life, and do not want too many outsiders to disturb their lives.
