THE INUIT PEOPLE THRIVE IN THE HARSH CLIMATES AND BLEAK LANDSCAPES FOUND IN THE ARCTIC TUNDRA. THEY ARE A HARDY NOMADIC PEOPLES WHO BUILD THEIR RESIDENCES OUT OF SNOW IN THE WINTER AND MAKE TENTS OUT OF ANIMAL SKINS IN THE SUMMER. MYTHOLOGY AND STORYTELLING COMPRISE A LARGE PART OF THEIR CULTURE. MALINA IS THEIR SUN GODDESS. SHE HAS A BROTHER NAMED ANNINGAN, THE MOON GOD. SHE AND HER BROTHER LIVED TOGETHER AND USED TO LOVE PLAYING GAMES. BUT, WHEN THEY GREW UP AND BECAME ADULTS, THINGS CHANGED. ONE NIGHT, WHILE THEY WERE PLAYING IN THE DARK, ANNINGAN RAPED HIS SISTER. SHE FOUGHT BACK, AND DURING THE CONFLICT, A SEAL LAMP OVERTURNED WHICH COVERED HER HAND WITH BLACK GREASE...WHICH SHE COVERED HIS FACE WITH WHEN SHE ATTEMPTED TO PUSH HIM AWAY.

EVENTUALLY, SHE GOT AWAY AND RAN AS FAR AS SHE COULD UP INTO THE SKY...WHERE SHE BECAME THE SUN. ANNINGAN, WHO SHOWED NO REMORSE FOR HIS CRIME, CONTINUED CHASING HER IN THE SKY; HENCEFORTH, HE BECAME THE MOON. THIS ETERNAL RACE CONTINUES ON AND OCCASIONALLY, HE CATCHES UP TO HER AND RAPES HER AGAIN. THIS IS IS WHY WE HAVE THE SOLAR ECLIPSE.

NOW, INUIT LEGEND GOES THAT ANNINGAN TENDS TO CONCENTRATE SO MUCH ON HIS MALINA, THAT HE FORGETS TO EAT...AND AS THE DAYS GO BY, HE GETS THINNER AND THINNER...UNTIL ONCE A MONTH HE (THE MOON) DISAPPEARS FOR THREE DAYS SO THAT HE CAN EAT. BUT, HE WILL ALWAYS RETURN TO CHASE HIS SISTER. AND THIS IS HOW THE INUIT PEOPLE EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENT PHASES OF THE MOON.
