To the Eskimos it was a proof of the efficacy of the appeal to the angakok.
The thong is attached to the end of a stick which is held in hand by the angakok.
One angakok throws her with his harpoon, another631 one stabs her, and by this means they cut off all the transgressions.
The angakok is generally not loved—he knows too many unpleasant things that are going to happen, so he says.
Tuavituk, the angakok, it was decided, must do some conjuring.
The business of the angakok is mainly singing incantations and going into trances, for he has no medicines.
