Description:

The Inuit of the Arctic use stitched together walrus skins to toss hunters in the air and search out game. The Nulukatuk is done in the whaling communities in the spring if there has been a successful whaling season. It is been part of the whaling feast activity as long as people can remember. With coordinated action by the pullers and the jumper, a person can go as high as thirty feet and land standing up. Each day at noon the Sooty Brothers from Canada invite you to join in the fun on a "trampoline" made of human springs.
