Inuit did not use ice. They used sod and wooden beams that they cut. The typical traditional inuit 'house' used sod, wood, rocks, and whatever else they wanted to put into it. But now they live in regular houses.

You shouldn't called indigenous people Eskimos.

Many Inuit, Yupik, Aleut and other individuals consider the term Eskimo to be unacceptable.

Why did sled dogs become necessary in the arctic?

In winter, when the seas are frozen, Eskimos can not use their boats to hunt food. They have difficulty getting from one place to another. Sled dogs can pull the sleds across the snow and ice so the Eskimos can hunt food and bring their food back to their homes. Sled dogs have been necessary in the Arctic as long as there have been Eskimos.
