“Long ago there was a great shaman. He wanted to live the life of animals.”

How did Inuit come to know so much about Arctic animals? Follow a shaman as he is reborn as a polar bear, a ringed seal, and more to learn about what each animal teaches him. Through simplified text and engaging illustrations, young readers are sure to enjoy this adaptation of a traditional story.

This stunningly illustrated bilingual picture book serves as an early-level introduction to the rich, mysterious world of Inuit mythology. Adapted by author and linguist Jaypeetee Arnakak with the intention of teaching Inuktitut as a second language, The Shaman Who Became Many Animals can be enjoyed by Inuktitut language learners and curious young readers alike.

Discover other traditional stories in our collection! The Story of the Lemming and the Owl, The Story of the Loon and the Raven, and The Story of the Fox and the Wolf are all available.

Audience: Age 6. Full colour illustrations throughout. Language: English, Inuktitut.
