The Spirit of the Sea

Spirit of the SeaThis 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.
