The Orphan and the Polar Bear

According to Inuit oral history, long ago animals had the power of speech, could shift their appearances, and could even assume human form. In this tale, a neglected orphan is adopted by a polar bear elder. Under the bear’s guidance, the little orphan learns the skills he will need to survive and provide for himself.
