is a dance contest. Like many Inuit games,
it tests one's agility and endurance. The contestants start in a squatting
position, facing each other in a circle. The dance involves kicking one
leg out while maintaining the squat position with the other, alternating
legs back and forth. When you hit the floor, your out! The dance ends when
the last dancer hits the floor.
It's not easy, but it's lots of fun
-- even if your the first one out!
