North America has been shaped by many people, most importantly the Native Americans who were the first humans to call the continent home. Over thousands of years, numerous groups of Native Americans have settled throughout North America. Today, one of the most well-known and recognizable tribes is the Inuit. They have called the northern recesses of Canada home for many hundreds of years. Their culture, communities, and language have been well preserved and continue to fascinate people around the world. Despite their continued presence, they have endured difficulties and hardships. This is the story of the Inuit, how they became a nation, their influence on the world, and how they have evolved into the Inuit communities today.
