Welcome to Indigenous Housing Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at various ways people have built houses based on locally available materials. What better way to start than with this picture from 1924 of Eskimos building an Igloo. I wish I understood more about how these people could survive in such inhospitable climates. Imagine . . . no firewood, no vegetables. They had very little to work with, but survived quiet nicely.
