Inuit Myths For All
I recently came across a new site, a valuable resource for those interested in Inuit mythology and stories. Here's what the developers have to say about their mission...
"Storytelling traditions around the world are passed from generation to generation, linking people to their cultures and ancestors. Traditional stories are an important aspect of Inuit culture. Currently in the Arctic, however, many of these stories are not being passed on and are at risk of being lost.
"The Qikiqtani Inuit Association (QIA) works hard to promote and protect Inuit culture. QIA has developed Inuitmyths.com, to provide a resource for Nunavummiut and people from around the world who want to learn more about the Inuit storytelling tradition.
There is actually a way to add your own myths for possible posting to the site making it able to grow and expand as time goes by. Check it out!
