The Ircinrraaq (Little People) of the Arctic - The Curious Fortean

The Arctic is no place for the faint of heart, as demonstrated by the Inuit folklore/history(?) of the various species of Little People inhabiting its rugged terrain. While some wee ones are credited with helpfulness, even kindness, the vast majority don't seem to care a great deal for the human interlopers in their cold space. Interestingly, these tales are passed on as truths in the Inuit tradition, something non-Inuits would find very unsettling. As Esoterx mentions in Our Furry Forefathers: The Basque History of Inter-species Relations, we typically draw a polarizing line between history and folklore, lest the full truth of the matter be more than we are comfortable assimilating into our narrow realities.
