a friend of mine spent a few months with an inuit family near the arctic
sea, and partly on the sea, barely moving in constant cold 60 mph winds
in a canoe with a 90 horsepower outboard motor. he said they mostly live
in houses these days, but still build igloos once in a while (2 people,
1/2 hour.) when the indoor igloo temp reaches 45 f, they chop holes in
the walls for more ventilation.
his guide was 67 years old and still lived with his grandparents,
following family custom.
