Evidence
Soapstone pots (uqusiglu) were used to steam or heat meat or fish over a soapstone stove or open fire. The kind of soapstone stove shown here would have been a small travelling stove used on short trips or by a hunter o his own. The muskox horn scoops (qaijutaq) would have served many purposes, but mainly scooping water or broth for cooking.
