Other Names: Big bad woman
Level: Intermediate Deity
Sea goddess of the Inuit people. Although occupying the equivalent position to Sedna, in that she had control of the animals of the seas.
Arnapkapfaaluk was not the beneficent goddess that Sedna was but instead inspired fear in hunters. Rather than providing the Inuit with the seals and other marine mammals she withholds them. The breaking of a taboo or other indiscretion would result in a unsuccessful hunt.
