Akutaq or agutak is a common food in western Alaska, consisting of whipped fat mixed with berries, with optional additions such as fish and sugar. The word comes from Yupik and means “something mixed.” (source)

Lyrics – Yupik

Yu rah ah rayk kum kun ong ah eh vay kum kun
Yu rah ah rayk kum kyn ong ah eh vay kum kun
I-eye yuk who aye yah hah I yuk who aye yah hah
Yahk hah hye eye yah
