Sub-Arctic

The Treeless Wonderland

The subarctic is a cool geographic area that stretches from Alaska over to the Atlantic Ocean. The people here eat meats such as caribou and moose as their staples, as well as birds, fish, berries, and nuts. These people live in bark or skin covered teepees, which they move around, following the caribou and moose. They wore animal skins as clothes, as well as rabbitskin robes, moccasins, mittens, and fur caps. The subarctic people created rock paintings, masks, knives, and other art. They decorate their clothing with porcupine quills. They used tools such as bows, snares, dip nets, snowshoes, tumplines, and sleds. These things are what allowed these people to survive in the challenging climate of the subarctic.
