No Name

This Natik figure, which I have called "No Name" was shown Dr. Furness by the woman "Emily."


First and Second: The same as the First and Second movements of "Three Stars."


Third: Then follow the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth and Tenth movements of the "House of the Blos-Bird." Remember that in this figure there is only one loop on each wrist, whereas there are two in the "House of the Blos-Bird," therefore where two loops or strings are referred to in the Sixth, Eighth and Ninth movements of the "House of the Blos-Bird," you will find in this figure only a single loop or string.

The figure is extended between the thumbs and little fingers (Fig. 400). By alternately bringing together and separating the thumb and little finger of each hand, the two parts of the figure can be made to move toward the hands.

This figure reminds us of the "Two Coyotes" of the Navahos. I have been particularly interested in "No Name" because I worked it out myself while trying to make variations on the "House of the Blos-Bird," and before I knew that Dr. Furness had collected it in the Caroline Islands.
