The frozen Inuit Underworld, ruled over by [SEDNA], Goddess of the Sea.The spirits who live there are also called the ADLIVUN. When you die, you descend into SEDNA's realm for purification, punishment or preservation. Once you've entered her deathly deep freeze, it can take a very long time to defrost.
Any living person foolish enough to visit must negotiate endless spinning circles of ice, and cauldron stews of seal meat bubbling and boiling forever. Shamans wishing to speak with SEDNA on urgent business are advised to use the trance-induced route which is much quicker.
But ADLIVUN is not the final destination of the dead. It is a kind of limbo place where all Earthly issues are turned to ice and smoothed away. (Or, in the case of evil, hacked off and stamped on.)
At the end of your stay, you will be cleansed and pure, ready for your final journey: to the paradise of the Moon...
