The goddess who lives in an underworld palace of the coasts of the Baffin Island. She was originally once a daughter of a chieftain called Sairqong ‘The Man with the Knife’. He tried to have her married but she turned down all the men put forward. She then decided to marry a bird. Her enraged father took her out to sea on a boat and then threw her overboard. She grasped onto the edge of the boat and pleaded to her father to let her on the boat but her father took out a knife and cut her fingers off. Her fingers then fell into the sea and transformed into various fish and sea mammals. Sedna’s name means ‘The One Down There’ and she is assisted by a seal called Quailertetang.
