Usage examples of "kyak".

But Kesshoo was the best hunter and the best kyak man in the whole village.

It was very lucky for the twins that their father was such a brave and skillful kyak man.

One April morning Kesshoo was working on his kyak to make sure that it was in perfect order for the spring walrus hunting.

Menie could see him running up the beach after the birds, and he could see his father working over his kyak near his home.

Then he got in and fitted the bottom of his skin jacket over the kyak hole and carefully slid himself into the open water.

Slowly Kesshoo drew the line taut, turned his kyak round, and started for the shore.

Kesshoo paddled slowly and carefully along, until at last there was only a little strip of water between the kyak and the solid ice.

The kyak was between him and the solid ice, and Menie could not possibly get into the kyak.

Then he gave a great sweep with his paddle and lifted his kyak right up on to it.

The boats were heavily loaded with dried fish, there were great piles of new skins heaped in the woman boats, and every kyak towed a seal.

I realized, from a kyak in the Prince William Sound, who can hear you scream?

George Davidson, President of the Geographical Society of the Pacific, has written an irrefutable pamphlet on why Kyak Island and Sitka Sound must be accepted as the landfalls of Bering and Chirikoff.

On the 6th the ships were at Kyak, where Bering had anchored, and amid myriad ducks and gulls were approaching a broad inlet northward.

Then all the men in the village would rush for their kyaks and set out after the walrus.

The men were brave and enjoyed the dangerous sport, but the women used to watch anxiously until they saw the kyaks coming home towing the walrus behind them.
