How did the Inuit spend the long winter and What did the Inuit do indoors when it was cold outside?

To escape the icy cold, the Inuit had to spend much of the winter indoors, but they made the most of this hardship.

Comfortable in their warm homes, winter became the season of socializing. Families gathered for feasts and singing and dancing. Both children and adults also loved telling stories and playing games.

Inuit hunters often dressed their dogs in small sealskin boots to protect their paws from sharp ice crystals.
