Walrus tusks after a hunting party.
All walrus tusks are carefully registered after a hunting party. Then, the tusks are sent to the administration as evidences of the number of walrus killed by the hunters. At the end of the hunting season, every hunter gets a salary according to the number of tusks he got. Hunting is a job, as the hunter provides food for the Chukchi community
