Concepts in Inuit mythology that differ from other religious mythologies[edit]

No eternal punishment after death[edit]

In Inuit mythology, the concept of eternal punishment, among other things, seems to not exist. The Inuit writer Rachel Attituq Qitsualik wrote about this: The Inuit cosmos is ruled by no one. There are no divine mother and father figures. There are no wind gods and solar creators. There are no eternal punishments in the hereafter, as there are no punishments for children or adults in the here and now.
