Inuit preferred Caribou over other land animals and would travel long distances to the known migratory paths taking always the risk that caribou’s path could change. One of the worst famines known to have devastated entire tribes was in the 1950’s when caribou changed their migration path. It is then that Inuit reluctantly felt forced to move near or into settlements. These hunters have a very good day with so many caribou available for herding and hunt.
