Note: Talluliyuk appears to kayak hunters. She waves her arms and causes bad fortune in hunting if she is seen but to catch her is good fortune. Using a magical word the Eskimos can make Talluliyuk come to them and when she approaches, they throw their harpoons at her. But Talluliyuk is so quick that no one has ever caught her. From - Eskimo Graphic Art, 1959 Cape Dorset catalogue, Background on prints.
