"Players, in a team of five Eskimo hunters (and a referee), hunt seals on a board representing the ice of Pelly Bay, experimenting with hunting and sharing strategies to solve the problems of an unpredictable supply of sustenance . . . The game also dramatizes the importance of sealing in Netsilik society and illustrates the relationship of the seal to mythology and kinship." From Man: A Course of Study, Unit 6, for 5th grade elementary students.
