Inupiat Eskimos

Laura and Elmer Davis from Kotzebue. They are my great granparents. They traded with the Russians. They are very famous for their trades from dog sledding.They are on fabric, shirts, and sweaters.

The ancestral Inupiat crossed the Bering Land
Bridge from Siberia during the period many
thousands of years ago when the sea level was
much lower than it is now. Some of the early
migrants continued their journeys on to the east
and south. Those who remained in the region
gradually established camps, small villages, and
trading routes.
