Believe it or not, Eskimos wear modern day clothing, just like us now! Now, way back when, they were animal skins to protect them from the extremely cold weather. Caribou was the most common animal skin that they wore. And, of course, they would have on a hooded coat, trousers, socks, mittens, and boots. They even wore goggles that were made from wood or bones. Some of the Elders still wear this form of traditional clothing.
