Thungalukh! Thungalukh!


... the Spirit of Darkness!

Show yourself!

Sedna! You!


I have protected your clan since time


But now, you forsake me and call upon the spirit of evil!

I no longer need your protection.

Thungalukh is all powerful.

With your words you damn yourself and your entire clan.

I'm taking the animals away.

Legend of Sarila

Where are all the animals?

It's been three moons!

I hope the others have better luck than us.

The shaman says the spirits are angry with the clan.

The shaman should bring back the animals.

What's he waiting for?

Kai kai .

Miki miki.

- Here.

- You can speaks with lemmings?



Only shamans can speak with animals.

Hand it over!

I want to keep him.

Animals are food!

But he's so tiny.

Apik is right.

That little guy isn't even one mouthful.

It could feed a dog.


Make your future wife happy!


But hide him!

Everyone's hungry.

I'll call you Kimi.


At least we're not coming home empty-handed.

Oh... what hunters we are!

Instead of bringing home game.

We're bringing home an extra mouth to feed.

Black lichen.

I didn't think I would find any more of this.

- What are you doing?

- Making a cure for the Chief's wife.

I'm going to be a healer when I grow up.

In that case, you must learn the secrets of plants.

Sandwort's roots.

Their secret is ...

-... you can eat them.

- I'll keep them for my brother.

Don't be scared, Kajuk!

He won't eat you.

Be careful, Mipuluk!

The dogs are hungry too.

Once again, Shaman.

Our hunt has yielded nothing.

We have neither pelts to trade

nor meat to eat.

I sense evil forces around me.

Weakening my powers.

No one in our clan wants to harm you.


He's just a poor orphan...

... with strange powers.

He's turning your son against you.


The spirits speak to me!


Break it up!


Little sister!

Stop that!

Kajuk, that's enough!

Kimi got him excited.


Can I hold him?

- He's a talking lemming.


A talking lemming? Come on Apik.

- See you later, Mipuluk.

A talkling lemming?

- All animals talk.

But we don't listen.

- Do you listen to the animals?

Did they tell you why they left?

Your ask a lot of questions, little sister.

I don't know why the animals left.

And... I don't know if we're going

to eat today.

I know!

- You found something?

It's a surprise.


This will do you good.

If she doesn't get meat soon,

the baby will die.

The spirits told me the animals will return.

It will be too late.

We must go to Sarila!

- Sarila?

Oh, shut up you old fox.

You're making the spirits angry!

Let her speak, Shaman.

Long ago, my father told me of a land...

... that lies to the north,

among the glaciers.

Rich with game ... a land

that only the pure of heart can set foot

... and gather its abundance.

Sarila... it's a legend!

If Sarila existed, I would know!

The spirits would have told me.

But what if Sarila does exist?

No. This is no time for fairy tales.Now is not the time to believe the fairy tale!

Shaman! Shaman! Come quick!

Kajuk! Oh, Kajuk!

The dog will die.

You'll save him?

- This dog is possessed!

It must be sacrificed!

- No!

The dog is no longer yours.

It belongs to the spirits.

Give him to me.

Sacrilege! This dog must die!

No! The dog will live.

Calm down boy.

Markussi! Thank you!

Like magic.

How did you know?

He asked.

Right, big brother?

- He asked?

No! Nothing like that.


They laughed at me!

It's Because that boy ....
