9781330481738: Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History: American XIV,, Report Arctic (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Anthropological Papers of the American Museum of Natural History: American XIV,, Report Arctic

The country itself being a low plain, it follows that the coast line is low, although there are in some places sea cliffs to the height of thirty or forty feet. The villages were strung along this coast and were built in locations determined by the food-gathering habits of the people. Between Point Hope and Point Barrow, the bowhead whale was of paramount importance. A village might therefore be located almost anywhere where the ice condi tions in spring allowed the whales to approach within five miles or less from shore in an ordinary year. Next to the whale, the seal was the most important item at Point Barrow and even farther south, although the walrus increased in importance west of Icy Cape.
