Indian stick pull

indian stick pull

Two-foot long stick. Tapered from the middle (thick center to thin points)
Two people hold the stick, each with one hand. The first to let go loses.

The background or reason for this event has to do with the ability to hold onto a wriggling, heavy, cold, wet fish.
A strong tight grasp was a necessity to catching food for a family.
