Inuit Dance Clothing Drum dances took place in large snowhouses built to hold up to sixty people. Dances welcomed travelling groups and friends or celebrated a successful hunt. Accompanying the dancers was a drum that was the property of the community. Drumming and dancing were complemented by songs that recorded all aspects of daily life. On these occasions the Copper Inuit wore decorative dance garments.
