ESKIMO RACE ON ALL FOURS
The performers stand with hands and feet on
the floor, the knees stiff, the hands clinched and resting on the
knuckles. The elbows should be stiff. In this position a race is run,
or rather "hitched," over a course that will not easily be too short
for the performers.
This is a game of the Eskimos, reported by Lieutenant Schwatka.
ESKIMO JUMPING RACE
Fold the arms across the breast with the knees
rigid and the feet close together. Jump forward in short jumps of an
inch or two.
This is the regular form of one of the games of the Eskimos,
reported by Lieutenant Schwatka.
