What Snow Goggles are made from

in the Inuit cultures the snow goggles are usually made from walrus tusk, animal bones, or antlers. The Inuit (Eskimo) Cultures include the Yup'ik, Inupiaq, and Inuit(Canadian). these cultures dont have a steady flow of resources due to the harsh northern climate so it oriented what the goggles were made out of. some of the more southern cultures such as the Tlingit and Athabascan cultures use a different method to making their snow goggles. the southern cultures have a steady flow of resources unlike the north. so they are almost always made from wood or antler. then the Aleutian culture uses mainly drift wood and bone for their snow goggles.
