A female sea monster in North America that is feared by the Tsimshian Indians. She has a child that has the appearance of a human who floats on the sea crying out like a human baby lost at sea. When good-hearted people rescue the baby and ring it ashore, the Hakulaq suddenly appears and accuses them of stealing her baby. She then creates a huge storm and waves that suck the rescuers into the ocean, drowning them.
