Description

Kiviuq, one of the greatest and most important characters in Inuit mythology, is said to have traveled over land and sea, overcoming obstacles and successfully defeating formidable foes. In Kiviuq and the Bee Woman, Kiviuq faces one of his most frightening opponents yet: Iguttarjuaq, a bee in human form. Known as the Bee Woman, she is a fearsome figure who is said to cook and eat humans. Trapped in her tent, Kiviuq must use all his powers to get to his qajaq and escape the Bee Woman!
