Canada's Caribou Eskimos A Drum Dancer Shod in Jungle Rubber Beats the Arctic's Barbaric Tom-tom In his nocturnal rituals the Caribou Eskimo sways like a chained elephant. At times as he sings his own private song he howls and groans, as if in a trance. His one-face drum consists of a skin stretched over a hoop. Usually he beats the vibrant rim rather than the skin. The women may chant, but drums are for men only (p. 96).
