Simeon Oliver’s Son of the Smokey Sea, page 201: Dr.Waugh of Columbia U Dental Clinic, wanted to learn more about Eskimo women "because they have remarkable strength in their jaws This comes from manufacturing the mukluks, or skin boots…The sole of the boot is made from a tough hide of the bearded seal." Because the girls chew this skin from early ages the Dr. discovered their jaw strength far surpasses that of Eskimo men.
