This traditional game was played to test ones ability to pack an animal or other heavy loads that they would often need to do when gathering different items that they would need to take back to their people. The objective to this game is to have for people latch onto and hang from your body; one person on each side of you, front, back, and both sides. Once you have them latched on you’re goal is to walk, or if you can, run, as far as you can with all four people latched onto you. Go until you cannot make it any further or until a person falls off.

Here’s a video that may help you with the process
