Iqsinaqtuit Those That Make One Frightened
While these predators all belong to the pisuktiit, they are also acknowledged separately for their ability to inspire fear in humans. Communities in the western mainland would know more about grizzlies, while those in the east or on Baffin Island are very familiar with polar bears. Wolves are found throughout most of the Arctic where Inuit live, generally following the caribou herds. Although normally wolves are not greatly feared, residents of Igloolik tell stories of packs of kaijjait, famished wolves, marauding encampments and hunters during times when game was scarce.
