Description

The Spirit of the Sea is an illustrated picture book telling the story of the spirit of the sea, known by many Inuktitut names including Nuliajuq, Sedna, and Takannaaluk, who is a key figure from the Inuit cosmology. Sedna was once a young woman who refused to marry, but the lies and deception of a treacherous bird and her own father's cowardice lead her to a life of solitude at the bottom of the ocean as the powerful, and at times vengeful, spirit of the sea. Steeped in Inuit traditional values and lifestyle, this book serves as an ideal introduction for understanding the creation of the sea mammals of the Arctic that the Inuit people have long depended for their survival and good health.
