Commentaires : It is thought that the Thule, the ancestors of the modern Inuit, migrated into the eastern Arctic around AD 1000 by following the expanding range of the bowhead whale. The bowhead whale frequents much of the eastern Canadian Arctic with the exception of southern Hudson Bay and the waters northwest of Baffin Island. The meat and especially the skin of the bowhead whale have been valued foods to the Inuit. Its oil was used as lamp fuel. Tools were fashioned from whale bone, and in former times, whale bones were used for house supports. ";
