Nadlok and the Origin of the Copper Inuit

Seasonal tent camp

A seasonal tent camp existed at Nadlok when Thule coastal people visited the water-crossing in July to spear caribou. Stone structures implying extended residence are absent. As bone blankets the entire island in a buried level below all stone structures, Nadlok was a large seasonal tent camp.
