Niukittuq [Short Legs]
“In Nuliajuuq’s story she leaves the camp when a man passes through. She gets on his kayak when asked. She had no clue this was a shape shifter. When they reached his destination she gets off and she sees the man get out of his kayak and she [is] so shocked as he lifts himself out of the kayak[; ] he appeared normal inside the kayak but he had really short legs. He takes Nuliajuuq on top of the cliff.”
