The Inuit are fascinating people, particularly for their resilience and adaptability to the harsh, cold winters of the North American Arctic. In the vast coldness of the Arctic, many tribes of Inuit sought comfort in snow-bricked, circular igloos. While some were permanent living spaces—a typical igloo could sometimes house up to 20 people—smaller igloos were erected as temporary homes, for example, when on a hunting trip by kayak. Aside from the igloo, the most well-known type of Inuit housing, people have utilized other shelters. During warmer periods, a tepee-like tent would do the trick. Some Inuit would also use earthhouses, which are dug several feet below the surface and only up to three feet above ground.
