Akutaq refers to what is commonly known as Eskimo Ice Cream. Akutaq is the common food in western Alaska that is made from whipped reindeer fat or tallow, seal oil, freshly fallen snow or water, fresh berries, and sometimes ground fish, ground caribou, and/or sugar; eaten as a dessert. Also a meal, a snack, or a spread; now usually made with shortening instead of tallow and with raisins; many variations, most involve mixing berries, meat, leaves, or roots with animal oil or fat Akutaq is also known as Aqutuk, Ackutuk, or Agutak. Akutaq is pronounced "a-goo-duk" I have just seen a documentary shown in a Bayerische channel about Akutaq and about the life of the Eskimos in Alaska. It was shown how they enjoyed a community festival and their food which they try to distribute to one another. I think no matter how hard life can be in that place, they are happy people. The reporter was asked to try the Akutaq by an old women who describes the ingredient she used making it and she calls it "Eskimo Ice Cream".
