Inukpajuaq translates as “Giant.” Inukjuak (Inuktitut: ᐃᓄᒃᔪᐊᒃ) is Inuktitut for “Giant.” The Inuit have another word for the tundra giants, Inukpaluk. Inuit people (Inupiat, Inuvialuit, Nunavut, Nunavik, Nunatsiavut, and Kalaallit) have been known to call these creatures Tornit, but also Turnit, Sauman Kar, and Saumen Kar.
This is Louie Makimak’s photograph (below) of where the “Inukpajuaq,” the recent northern Quebec Sasquatch was seen. Here you see the hill, the lowest mountain in the middle, where the Inukpajuaq (her drawing above) was seen at 8 pm on September 29, 2012. She was there with Maggie Cruikshank Qingalik, from Akulivik, Quebec, who were picking berries. More information is being shared, slowly but surely. (Facebook)
