Sedna was the princess of an Inuit tribe and she was very haughty. Her father kept trying to get her to marry but she refused even the best men of the neighboring tribes. One day a fine handsome fellow, bedecked in riches and furs, came to Sedna and asked to marry her. She was wowed by the man's riches and also his promises to take her far away where she would bask in lavish splendor. She readily agreed and they were married immediately. When it came time to leave Sedna took nothing of her own with her to the kayak. She believed that she would have such finery that she wouldnt' need any of her old crap. When they arrived at his home she was sorely disapointed. It was an empty island and her husband was a creepy birdman. During the day he would fly off, only returning at night with a raw fish for his wife. She was understandably miserable.
