Aboriginal Contributions and Inventions:
Extand technologies as of contact:
The technologies used in each group were devolped and made to their needs and way of life. They have different resources, all depending on where their home/resting place is, and they used what they had.
There are some technologies that many groups use, and there are others that are just used from a special group. For example: The cure for scurvy that saved one of Jacques Cartier's men from dying was created by the Aboriginals.
one of the innovations speceifc to the thule was the sun goggels. the sun goggles were made from drift wood or tree bark. thry would protect your eyes from the glar from the snow in the sun. these have bee passed down through the ages this is just one of the many artc innovations.
I think that different groups had different technologies maybe because they were in different climites; so for example maybe some groups don't have canoes because they aren't near water or some groups dont have snow shoes because they dont have snow year around.
im not too sure yet
The technologies common to each Aborginal group were common because they all needed them to a degree (spears, arrows, etc), whereas things like snow shoes and dog sleds would be specific to just one group far north because they needed to adjust to their environment.
