AngunasuktiitThe Hunters

These birds, which are hunters, chase down other birds or animals for their prey. Although the Inuit recognize that these species differ from each other, they are grouped together because of their similar lifestyle. The common raven is not considered a true member of the angunasuktiit – "it's nothing but a thief" – but is nevertheless associated with the other hunters. In fact, of these species, it is the raven which probably holds the most important place in the Inuit culture, along with the snowy owl.
