The Laughing Game


During the frigid winter months when there is no sunlight, people gather indoors to sing, dance and play games. The rules of this laughing game are simple. Opponents laugh while the feather is airborne. When the feather touches the ground, laughter stops and the stare-down begins. This is a video clip from the documentary film Games of the North: Playing for Survival.
