Arctic Odyssey Introduction
The Inuit people have lived in the Arctic for thousands of years. They are relentless survivors, who pass wisdom through stories about people and spirits.
Amarok, the wolf spirit, teaches us not to hunt at night.
Nanuk, the bear spirit, teaches us how to respect our quarry and use every bit of the carcass.
And the Caribou Mother, source of both human and caribou spirits, teaches us to only kill what we must or else starve in the coming seasons.
Join the Orange Runner on a journey from Gris Fiord, the northernmost Inuit settlement, to the North Pole. He seeks a legendary shaman-- known to run across the entire world in just a night. Along the way he meets Inuit spirits to teach and guide him. Follow his journey through this series of comics. You'll learn both the myth and reason behind Inuit tales-- and how their lessons can help your training. Put those lessons to use by logging your miles to Strava, where you'll get graphics to illustrate your journey.
