*Oosik is a term used in Native Alaska cultures to describe the Bacula of walruses, seals, sea lions, and polar bears. Sometimes as long as 60 cm (24 in),
fossilized Bacula are often polished and used as a handle for knives and other tools. The Oosik is a polished and sometimes carved baculum of these large northern carnivores.
