Inuit Mythology

The Gods and Spirits of the Inuit

TORNGARSAK

Inuit Ruler God

Also known as Tornarsuk, Torngasak, Torngasoak

Chief Inuit God and the Eskimo Enigma

He may be a bear or a one-armed warrior or a tiny little midget finger puppet. He is all creation but creates nothing. Is immortal but can be killed by thunder.

Eskimos have no problem with this — they regard him as a pretty good God. Ideal for Igloo ‘I-Spy’ evenings when you have to make your own entertainment.
