Honoring Sedna was critical to the success of the hunt. The figure at the bottom of this print with the human face, arms and legs with the bird next to it is likely to be Sedna. There are many versions of the Sedna myth. In one tale, she married a man who is a bird in disguise and was very unhappy when he revealed himself. Her father came to save her and they tried to escape in a boat. A terrible storm came up and Sedna was cast overboard. From her accident all sea mammals and the polar bear were born. She also partially transformed into a sea mammal herself and lived at the bottom of the ocean. When great storms came up or animals were scarce, the Inuit believed that Sedna was upset. A shaman would go to her through a trance and calm her by brushing her hair.

One of the first Inuit trained as a printmaker (he settled in Cape Dorset in the 1950s for health reasons), Kananginak had studied and hunted birds since he was a boy. He knows birds so well that he does not need photography or even an actual model to draw from, just his imagination. His work differs greatly from most of his contemporaries in its realism. The Common Eider, a sea-duck that breeds in the Arctic, is the largest duck in the Northern Hemisphere. Its arrival announces the coming of summer. Along with Iyola Kingwatsiak, whose work is also in the MAG collection, Kananginak was one of the founding members of the West Baffin Eskimo Cooperative. Kananginak became the Cooperative’s first elected president.
