The remote American territories  of Alaska and the Yukon were a complete mystery to most Americans.
The Esquimaux (or Esquimau), was an attraction  that gave the Pike-goer a hint on this frigid
region. The attraction consisted of  a Esquimau Village, complete with dog sleds and glaciers.

There were sled dog shows, Esquimau displays of athletic skill,  and matrimonial and burial ceremonies.

The Klondike Mining Company had a display of  panning  for gold.

Esquimaux men cracked their whips to snatch a coin from a volunteer's fingers.

The finale of the show was a representation of the Aurora Borealis.
