Natural elements

Until the Early Paleoindian period, the ice sheet covered almost all of Northern Quebec and reached as far south as the lower Laurentian Mountains. As the ice began to gradually retreat, small groups of Palaeoindian populations moved into the newly freed land, travelling over vast territories as they sought available resources. They thus acquired invaluable knowledge of a fairly hostile environment.
