The story of Sedna, the goddess of the sea and marine animals

The story of Sedna

The legendary Sedna lived in the snow-covered plains of Greenland. One day, Sedna’s father, angered by his daughter’s refusal to marry any suitor, takes her out on the open seas and throws her overboard. When she tries to climb back on board, he cuts of her fingers. Sedna forever disappears under the waves. Out of her fingers are born the first seals, walruses, and whales. From that moment on, Sedna rules the seas and commands all marine creatures.
