It projected four or five feet on each side,—far enough for them to take hold to carry the oomiak on it.
The oomiak was about twenty-seven feet in length by six in width.
Among the latter was an oomiak full of women who went along-shore to fish, and with whom were old Kannoa, Nunaga, and others.

This is called an oomiak by the Innuits or Eskimos, and a bidarra by the Russians.
There are five natives with me, and we have an oomiak up there in the bushes.
Something very much like a feminine screech rose in the oomiak.
This was the fact that, although night was coming on, the oomiak with the women had not returned.
“When the oomiak swelled I thought it was going to burst,” added the chief.
No one objecting to this, the oomiak was paddled towards the land.
