What Did the Inuit Eat?

The Inuit was the group of natives that lived within the artic regions of Greenland, Canada, Russia, and the artic regions of the United States. They are closely related to the Eskimo. As a result of where the people lived, the Inuit tended to have a died that was nominally comprised of fish because this is what was highly available to them within this region. They also ate things such as caribu, walrus, polar bears, and seals. When available, the Inuit also ate various birds, and other animals such as artic foxes. Because of the region in which they lived, the Inuit had a diet that was nominally comprised of protein. They ate very little vegetables and grains.
