He wanted to go into the quaggi, the Singing-House, when the hunters gathered there for their mysteries, and the angekok, the sorcerer, frightened them into the most delightful fits after the lamps were put out, and you could hear the Spirit of the Reindeer stamping on the roof; and when a spear was thrust out into the open black night it came back covered with hot blood.
Then the angekok, the village sorcerer, came in, and Kotuko told him the tale a second time.
Follow the tornait [the spirits of the stones], and they will bring us food again," said the angekok.
Ah," said the angekok, with an important cough, as though he had been thinking it all over.
Everybody was full and sleepy, so no one contradicted; and the angekok, by virtue of his office, helped himself to yet another lump of boiled meat, and lay down to sleep with the others in the warm, well-lighted, oil-smelling home.
