Story time

All Yup'ik dances tell a story. Can you tell what this one is about?

They are all clearly having fun during this dance. On Friday night, an elderly Yup'ik lady sat down in front of me and asked if I would open her bottle of apple juice. After that, she introduced herself to me and we started talking. She translated several of the Yup'ik songs for me (not this one). I've always wondered what the words to the songs were and it has so fun to hear her excitedly describe them.
