A'akuluujjusi is the great creator mother among the Inuit people.
A'akuluujjusi created the animals that the Inuit people eat such as Caribous
and Walruses. The people became upset because these two new animals attacked
them. Therefore, A'akuluujjusi swapped the walrus' antlers and the caribou's
tusks. After that, the people still complained that the caribou was too fast
to catch. A'akuluujjusi solved this by turning the caribou's belly-hair around
so that the hairs will get caught in the wind, slowing the caribou down.

caribous. Without him, the people would not have survived. Through
this event, our modern world now has walruses and caribous roaming
