Ahkiyyini

 
In Eskimo folklore there is a skeleton-ghost named Ahkiyyini. He was always dancing when he was alive, and his skeleton comes back every so often to do a jig that shakes the ground and turns boats over in the river. He makes his own music, using his arm bone as a drumstick and his shoulder blade as the drum.
