Kiviuq’s Journey retells the legend of Kiviuq, one of the most important and well-known legends in all of Inuit mythology, just as it as been told in the Kivalliq region of Nunavut for centuries. Late Kivalliq-region elder Henry Isluanik lovingly retells this legend of a lost Inuit hunter who must pass through many obstacles, using his own knowledge and quick wit to outsmart many foes, in order to find his way home. With black-and-white line illustrations by acclaimed Inuit artist Germaine Arnaktauyok, this book is a definitive and authentic printed account of an important Inuit traditional story. Intended for adult readers, this is a perfect selection for Inuit studies students.
