Entertainment at the Esquimaux Village at the Pan American Exposition, 1901. Visitors were promised a look at Eskimos in their natural surroundings pursuing their usual pastimes. 2 Eskimo men are snapping whips on the ground, in some sort of game or contest - -maybe they are hitting some sort of targets? (it's hard to see). 2 other Eskimos, a man and a woman, stand watching them, in front of a large tipi (tepee?) of animal skins; icy Arctic scenery in BG.
