Welcome to a virtual world reconstruction of the interior of an Inuvialuit sod house. The reconstruction is based on the remains of a sod house at the Kuukpak archaeological site, which was excavated in the 1980s by the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre.

Use the keystrokes shown on this page to navigate in this virtual world. Once you have mastered the navigation, try moving around inside the house. Look for tools that were used by the people who lived at Kuukpak hundreds of years ago. You will see a spinning green object just above each tool, which will turn red when you get close. Click on the objects to learn about the tools.
