Ways of walking

Thinking of backpacking this summer? Sherpas are the best at carrying loads. But wasn't that technique of pack basket and tump line also used by Eastern Woodland Indians and the white fur-trappers who emulated them?

Or you could give up on the whole walking-upright thing (video here). In that case, how do you manage when your pelvis is aligned for upright walking?
