The Spirit of the Sea

Author(s): Rebecca Hainnu

This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the story of the spirit of the sea, often known as Nuliajuq, Sedna, Takannaaluk, and many other Inuktitut names.

Once a young woman who refused to marry, the lies and deception of a traitorous bird—and her own father’s cowardice—lead Nuliajuq to a life of solitude at the bottom of the ocean as the powerful, and at times vengeful, spirit of the sea.
