Takannaaluk

2018by Hervé Paniaq and Germaine Arnaktauyok

'Takannaaluk' means 'the one down there'--a term used in the High Arctic to refer to the mother of sea mammals, the most important being in Inuit mythology. This unique picture book tells how she came to be both feared and respected. As a young woman, Takannaaluk is tricked into marrying a sea bird posing as a man and then betrayed by her family. Her story is brought to vivid life by respected elder Herve Paniaq and renowned artist Germaine Arnaktauyok. -- Amazon.com
