The North Pole, What Do You Know About?
- It’s the point of intersection between earth’s axis of rotation meets the surface.

- As within the south pole, all the latitudes meet. Therefore, both of them don’t follow a certain time zone but the time zones are set relative to them.

Certainly you’ve seen movies or documentaries about eskimo tribes. They don’t live exactly in the north pole but in the areas around it; like northern Siberia, the shores of Alaska, the northern coast of Canada and many more areas.
They’re divided into two main tribes Yupik and Aleut. They adapted with their environment very well and perfectly using whatever resources they have. They created a natural life for themselves. Living on hunting and fishing using their kayaks and use animal skins to make cloth and their summer houses. During winter, they build their houses from ice cubes and they use sleds pulled by a team of 7 to 14 husky dogs for transport.
They differ from other materialistic people because they believe in the communication between humans and spirits of nature, the spirits of sick and dead, spirit of a newborn and gods to help their sick and control natural events. They also carve wooden masks to represent each of these spirits.
The totem is one of these carvings representing a sacred object of a family or a tribe.
