Sedna mythology

Sedna is a wrathful sea goddess in the mythology of the Inuits (Eskimos). She is also referred to as the Mother of the Sea and Mistress of the Sea.

In Inuit Mythology

In one version of her story, she was conceived by giants. She was the daughter of the creator god Anguta. Since she was born to these giants she had an unnatural craving for flesh. She was thrown into the sea by her father once he discovered that she was eating him and his wife in their sleep. When she tried to cling onto the side of the boat, her father cuts her fingers off and she sinks into the underworld. Her severed fingers later formed the first sea creatures. She now resides on the bottom of the sea despising humans and sends storms to kill them. She could only be pleased if shamans combed her long hair.
