Note: Part of the Cape Dorset Series,a collection of uncatalogued prints that do not appear in the annual graphics catalogue, except when taken from the archives. Sometimes called “Northern Editions,” these prints were, at outset, only sold in Cape Dorset. In this image pairs engage in different games to test strength. Such as ear tugging, which uses a piece of soft leather around the contestant's ears; arm wrestling; and the tugging game, the objective of which is to pull your opponent off the ground.
