goitre, presmnably due to iodine deficiency, was demonstrated earlier, it is not found now. Both thyrotoxicosis and myxoedema in Athabaskan Indians occur with only one-third the frequency that is found in Eskimos and in Tlingit Indians. Choleli thiasis is only half as frequent in northern Eskimos

Yek
Abstract
The crest animal embodies all that man controls; it is the visual symbol of the social order. Animals of the supernatural domain, the yek controlled by shamans, differ considerably from crest animals. The Tlingit shaman encounters the yek animal on his vision quest, transforms into it during his masking ritual, and interacts continually with it.

The Tlingit shaman used his powers to cure the sick, combat witches, assure success in battle, cleanse the village of malevolent spirits, control the weather, guarantee good fish runs, prognosticate the future, interact with those far off, and rescue people kidnapped by land otters. The Tlingit shaman presented a striking image.
