Alaska Native Collections – Sharing Knowledge



At Cape Wankarem I saw the Chukchi capture many eider ducks by its aid, and frequently saw one of the extended balls or its cord touch a duck, when the other balls appeared as if endowed with intelligence; their course was rapidly changed, and the bird enwrapped completely…They are used mostly on low points over which waterfowl fly at certain hours of the day.

—Edward Nelson, in “The Eskimo about Bering Strait,” 1899
