. Report of the Canadian Arctic Expedition 1913-18. Scientific expeditions. Eskimo String Figures 71 B You have left only one loop on each thumb. Drop the index loops. You have "the two fawns," one on each side, facing in opposite directions. (All the last movements with the thumbs recur in several other figures. See Nos. XXXII, XXXIII, XXXIY.). Fig. 78 LVIII. Two Small Seagulls = nawyatoafc (Mackenzie river and Corona- tion gulf) The movements of this figure are rather unusual. Opening A. Pass the thumbs down on the proximal side of the other strings and from the proximal side take up the ulnar little finger strings. Pass the httle fingers into the index loops from the distal side and hook them down over the ulnar thumb strings. Drop the index loops. In the middle two diagonal strings cross each other. Pass the indices from the distal side into the upper quarter thus formed above the diagonals, and hook their palms round behind the lower string of each diagonal and draw it out, turning the indices outward. Turn the httle fingers also outward, retaining only their proximal loops. Straighten these loops, then remove the index loops to the little fingers..
