The Creation of the Tuktu and the Amarok
Inuit Folk Tale
There was nothing in the world except for a man and a woman. The woman came to a hole in the ice. She reached in and felt something, and so she pulled it out. It was a tuktu, which is the caribou. It was this animal that the Inuit needed for their food and clothing.
For many years there were so many caribou that the people called them lice, but soon the hunting killed off all the fat, healthy animals. The only ones left over were the sick ones. Soon they began to breed and multiply, and the herd got weak and sick.
So the people came back to the woman to ask her what to do. She went back to the hole in the ice because she needed a tool to cut the sickness out of the herd, and the amarok was born. The wolves hunted the caribou and they killed off all the weak, sick ones. The people had all the caribou that they needed.
