Scope and content

A crowd gathered on a beach watches what appears to be a Saatlsaach or Samiilth ceremony as indicated by the K’aanaatla, the man in the foreground in a stooped posture with a sheet running from his heads down the length of his backs. The K’aanaatla mimics a wolf. He holds short sticks in each hand which represent the animals’ lower limbs and protects his hands from the barnacles and seashells on the beach. A yashmakats (canoe) visible in the central part of the image has had the tip of its bow kwama sawn off to facilitate its use on sealing schooners in the Bering Sea.
