qamutik (sled)


A model of a dog team pulling a sled. The hunter wears clothing made of seal skin. Dogsleds enabled hunters to travel far out onto the ice in pursuit of such game as polar bears. Today the snowmobile has largely replaced the dogsled.

This object is on display at RAMM in the World Cultures gallery.
