People of The First Nations For centuries the first European explorers had said that all first nations are the exact same but actually there are all different in their own ways. They all have different hunting, living, cooking, and trading styles. In this essay I will be outlining just a few of the different ways they do things.

The people of the great lakes hunted prey in the lakes. The first people of the Arctic, hunted walrus and eat dogs when they went hungry, they also hunter caribou and fish in small groups. The Inuit followed the wales, seals and caribou. The technology was a great difference between the native groups. The people of Atlantic Canada for example constructed fish traps, made bows and arrows, they also made spears, clubs and long stemmed pipes. They made birchbark canoes, show shoes and the unique technology of the toggle head spear. The people of the Arctic made soapstone lamps, snow knives for carving things.
