Innu

  1. 1. INNU By:Irene Delgado Hernandez 1 D
  2. 2. Where do they live? they live in Canadá,is a vast area of sub-artic spruce and fir forest,lakes,rivers and rocky barrents.They called that land Nitassinan.The temperature was very cold.
  3. 3. How do they live? <ul><ul><li>Up until the second half of the 20th century, the Innu lived as nomadic hunters. For most of the year, the waterways of Nitassinan are frozen, and they would travel in small groups of two or three families on snowshoes. When the ice melted, they would travel by canoe to the coast or a large inland lake to fish, trade, and meet friends and relatives. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 6. How is the society organized? <ul><ul><li>Did not enjoy a true tribal organization, but bands were divided intonumerous bilateral organization familiar with and without clans, ledon a rotating basis by the best hunter or wotshimao, which sharedthe hunting grounds, which were large and vaguely defined, and changes according to the rise or fall of the warlords. Often moved to the coast to trade with the missions. Since the mid-twentieth century engaged in hunting or tourism </li></ul></ul>
  5. 7. What do they eat? <ul><ul><li>They hunt animals including bear, beaver and porcupine, and also fish and gather berries – but most of all they rely on the herds of caribou which migrate through their land every spring and autumn. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Until recently, the Innu got all that they needed – food, clothing, shelter, tools and weapons – from the caribou, which have a huge cultural significance. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Today the Innu have been settled into villages. Although many hunt, fish and gather, some have paid jobs as well, or depend on social security. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 8. In what do they belive? <ul><ul><li>They believed in Manitou, supreme being common to all the Algonquin, as well as plenty of natural forces and animal spirits, bothgood and bad. They also have a flood legend, that Kuekuatshev putin a boat one animal from each species. Take advantage of all thecaribou and celebrate a great feast or ritual that affirms mokoshangroup cohesion </li></ul></ul>
  7. 9. What problems do they face? <ul><ul><li>the nomadic Innu were pressured into settling in fixed communities by the Canadian government and Catholic church. The transition was difficult and traumatic. Life in the communities is marked by extremely high levels of alcoholism, petrol-sniffing amongst children, violence, and record levels of suicides. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Many of the Innu are still fighting to retain much of their traditional lifestyle, increasingly difficult as the government hands out their land in mining concessions </li></ul></ul>
