A giant sea creature who is believed to balance the world on his a spinning pole which he holds on his back. Over time his muscles become exhausted but he is always temporarily relieved from this pain by serpents who release duck oil to ease his muscles. It is believed by the Tsimshian people of North America that when all ducks have been hunted to extinction then there will be no more duck oil and as a result Amala will loose control of the spinning pole, bringing an end to the world.
