Inuit Inuit planetoid 2100 Bell, M. Shayne. Inuit. Eugene, OR: Pulphouse (1991); pg. 30-31. "If Anvik did not get a whale, he could lead us to Atka to hunt caribou.

Thule hugged Anvik and ran off to find Father. I looked at Anvik.

'I know what you're thinking,' he said. 'I don't have a wife to give my men.' Every leader of a hunt exchanges his wife with his men to cement their friendship.

Mother turned the spit of fish she tended and winked at me. 'But if his hunt is successful, the elders will recognize a marriage for him,' she said. She nodded at a beautiful girl basting seal roasts over another fire: Taimyr, Kendi's older sister... Taimyr and Anvik were friends. I had known couples to live together till a baby came before the elders recognized them. Mother and Father had done that, and Anvik had gotten them recognized. But if what Mother said were true, the elders would recognize Anvik and Taimyr son. It would be unusual and wonderful. "

She folder her arms and sat frowning by the door. No one dared speak to her. The other looked Inuit, at first, but he wore a student's white shirt and blue pants, and when he spoke I knew he was not Inuit, not part of the people. I stared at him; we all stared at him, tried to understand him when he talked, laughed when he mispronounced words -- and he laughed with us. "

I was sitting in the prow of my family's umiak while we rowed from Atka to the mainland, and whales were in the sea. We meant the whales no harm--we had plenty of dried meat--and Father had sung his songs over our umiak, so he and Anvik, my older brother, rowed with confidence through the whales. The whales were spouting and taking fresh air, but suddenly the ones farthest out began to sound.

We saw, then, the men not Inuit. They came in a great umiak larger than ten the size of my family's, and they were hunting: they held harpoons ready to throw... The men not Inuit held their harpoons. They stopped near us, among whales larger than even their umiak. The men not Inuit looked at us and at the whales, and we looked at the men. They shouted words to us I could not understand, and we rowed away quickly without answering. " [Many refs. throughout story to Inuit, most not in DB.]
