The Inuits were a group of culturally similar people inhabiting the Arctic regions of Greenland, Canada, and the United States. Their climate was a Tundra, It was very cold and mostly covered in snow except in some areas during the summer.

The Inuit tribe did not really have structures of sorts, but they did have Unuksuk which is a stone landmark that is suppose to be sacred. They would sometimes hide things in them saving for the winter, etc. It was basically a pile of rocks that they would build up one by one almost like a sacrifice.

Some of their famous leader were Pkalik (premier of Njunavut), Nancy Karetak-Lindell              (Member of Parliament of Canada) Leona Agulukkarq (Canada's Minister
