Attended native dance in "Koz-ge"
Buying specimens of Eskimo
work all day - gave another
case of hard tack - to the Koz ge
nearest to the hill.
Visited many native houses today
with "Ok-ba-ok", the chief &
bought some fine jade specimens.
Finished visiting the native houses
with Ok-bá-ok. We did not miss
a house, and I talked (through the
interpreter) with them & their mode
of life - hunting - sealing & working
Visited the "Koz ge" & found it full
of workers - at mid afternoon - &
tonight attend a reception there
- music - dancing - theatricals,
feasting. As each family came in
it was received by the drummers &
singers & those coming in danced.
After the feast for those "received" they
departed in the same order with
music, & dancing.
