Folks Dressed Up Like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe helps to make the season bright, but not many people know how Eskimos dress.

Eskimos (in Canada, at least) generally prefer to be referred to as Inuit, which means "people" in Inuktitut, the language of the Inuit. Inuit have a variety of modes of dress.

This website shows you the diversity of Inuit style, so you can visualize it better, when you hear the song during this Christmas season.

Let's challenge the stereotypes! Email me your pictures at folksdresseduplikeeskimos@gmail.com

Nakurmiik!!

Joseph Flowers, Inuk from Nunatsiavut and Nunavik
This is a photo of my Uncle Danny. He says he is wearing seal skin pants and coat. Doesn’t look like it to me, but hey, he’s the one who is wearing the skins. Kuujjuaq, Nunavik. In front of his 2006 black and 2008 Harleys. 
Uncle Danny wrote me a note, saying: “HI Joey, I was only joking when I said I’m wearing a seal skin pants and jacket I thought you would have noticed they were not seal skin clothing they are regular black jeans and a black Harley jacket. Sorry for the false info but just letting you know the TRUTH!!!”
