                          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.
