I think the story reasonably conveyed the Eskimo tradition of naming a baby after a deceased relative. It also reasonably conveyed an Eskimo girl's first dance. I still didn't think it was the best though. I would maybe use this story in a school curriculum to illustrate the differing customs of other cultures.
