Eskimo yo yo from Savoonga

I am sorry I have not posted on here in soooo long! I am back in the saddle. I have tried being "cool" and posting from my phone but it is NOT working out for me....can't figure it out. So will have to do it the old fashioned way I guess. I got this Eskimo yo-yo in the village of Savoonga. The "string" is whale sinew braided together and the the piece you hold onto is old ivory...and the bottom pieces are two mukluks made out of seal skin. Here is fancy pants Iran showing me how cool he is in using this yo-yo. Actually he is the best one so far!
