Fairy Tale Interpretation

Yupik Folk Tales

Outside the wind howled, whipping snow so fast the temperature had dropped to -70 below zero. There were no wolves howling in the distance, no foxes slinking through the quite village, not on this night it was far too cold, there was only the sound of the whipping wind and snow. Everything else was all resting safely in dens or under the small wooden house. The house which creaked with protest as the children listened intently to the old lady tell them ancient stories, stories which made them squeal in fear at the ghosts which would steal thumbs or the little people who would come down from the northern lights to take them away to the frozen land in the sky.
This is not simply a thought for me, rather it’s a moment in time. I was there, I recall hunting for ghosts and fairy like creatures on the frozen tundra in the winter and for blackfish in the swamps and bogs in the summer. I recall listening to my elders tell stories and warn me about the dangers of graveyards and other haunted places. So far as I know many of these stories are not written down, at least I haven’t found them. Rather they are the tales of my childhood. Some of them are likely very old but others are newer, additional stories created for the modern and changing world.
