16 American Indian Tribes Arctic Farther north, Inuit people were heavily impacted by the intensification of whaling in the late nineteenth century. Scottish and American whalers were active in Baffin Bay and Davis Strait from the 1830’s on, while American whalers had established themselves in North Alaska by the 1880’s and 1890’s. These contacts had a significant impact on the Eskimos. Not only did infectious diseases take a heavy toll in many areas, but also the whalers introduced the Inuit to highly desirable material goods.

Even insects, such as crickets, locusts, ants, and grasshoppers, were collected. In some areas, larvae would accumulate in large mounds on beaches, and these were dried and stored in baskets or grass-lined pits for winter consumption. Hunting was often done by individuals, rather than groups, using sinewbacked bows; in these instances the ability to stalk was more important than marksmanship. Rabbits and insects, however, were hunted in large collective drives that forced game into bush barriers, where they were killed.
