"Such festivities last all night - almost until dawn. At the end, the host gives to all whom he has invited parkas, amber and dentalium beads, and other riches he possessed. He also gives gifts to the owner of the kazhim, the speaker, and others, as he deems necessary. Then they disperse, without any kind of ceremeony, but in a restrained manner - without noise, in silence (Gideon 1989:45-46)."
