In this story from West Greenland, one young girl tries to teach her mischievous little sister a lesson by telling her the Inuit traditional story of Takannaaluk.

Pivik is the laziest little sister! She is always complaining about helping Anaana and stealing the best food for herself. Fed up, her big sister, Ukaleq, seizes the chance to teach Pivik a lesson. Ukaleq tells Pivik the story of how Takannaaluk became the Mother of Sea Mammals. Ukaleq warns Pivik not to anger Takannaaluk by being greedy, or their community will starve. Pivik is so scared she can’t sleep! Will Ukaleq’s lesson finally teach Pivik to put others before herself?

Explore a spooky legend from the deep waters of West Greenland from Paninnguaq Lind Jensen, the author of Talloqut.

Paninnguaq Lind Jensen is a traditional practitioner of kakiornerit. She loves reading and learning more about Inuit culture and traditions. Paninnguaq has a daughter and one more baby on the way. She wishes for them and all Inuit children that all kinds of stories, knowledge, and information about Inuit culture and traditions will be easily accessible for them. Paninnguaq wants to tell as many stories as possible and share as much knowledge as she can.
