Maria talks about when they first had ski doos and the people believed ski doos made work and travel easier. However not many people had ski doos, only those who worked. The main use of ski doos was to get fire wood and it was far away where they got their firewood. When their children were away at school, the women went to visit them and bring them warm clothing.
