The Inuit / Eskimo People

The Eskimo myth, as recorded by Petitot, is very simple; no cause is assigned for the great flood, which covered the summits of the Rocky mountains. Some Eskimo tied their boats together so as to make a large raft, on which they floated safely over the huge waves. The flood was calmed by a juggler or magician throwing first his bow and then his earrings into the water.
