FOUR ESKIMO GIRLS NEAR CAPE NOME, ALASKA The dress of the Eskimo consists entirely of skins of seal, reindeer, bear, and fox, the first twobeing the most common. The dress of the women differs but little from that of the men-a suit with a long jacket and trousers tucked into seal-skin boots. The jacket, which has ahood to cover the head, is often embroidered with strips of dyed leather and is skillfully made. In winter two suits areworn, one with the fur inside, the other with it outside.
