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!!

Here’s a photo of my friend Kitty. She describes her clothing as follows: I am wearing a leather jacket I picked up at a garage sale for $5 and clothes mixed and matched from various womens department stores in Montreal. This outfit probably cost altogether $45-$50. This look is kind of the-everyday-me.
