Snow for igloos




Baker Lake elder Silas Aittauq: Talking about the people before him.
The Inuit groups didn't stay together but they knew very well about the snow. The Inuit used the word igluvigaqturvik
(iglu vi gaq tuq vik) meaning that a certain area of a land to be a good spot for building iglu's. The Inuit always returned to those same area's because they knew it was good for building iglu's.
