"This is a recent (blind) and 'Look-Out' post for Inuit hunters. Used for waterfowl, and marine mammals, that is built up with driftwood. The majority of driftwood initially arrived by spillover by the Yukon river to the south that washed into the Bering Sea and drifted north to be deposited on beaches in the high Arctic. There are no native trees in this region of the Arctic and all native villagers were reliant on this supply. Ancient houses were all build utilizing this driftwood source as well has arrows and harpoon shafts and a myriad of utility items."
