Nadlok and the Origin of the Copper Inuit


A kayak is a long narrow water-tight skin-covered framework with a small cockpit for a hunter using a double paddle. Long lances and harpoons are fastened to its forward cover using a quick release harpoon rest. Although kayak parts were not found at Nadlok, the harpoon rest indicates their use.
