Sedna is the goddess of the sea and marine animals in Inuit mythology, also known as the Mother of the Sea or Mistress of the Sea. The story of Sedna, which is a creation myth, describes how she came to rule over Adlivun, the Inuit underworld. The legend of how Sedna became a sea goddess is told throughout the Arctic. The story varies from one region to the next. However, in all versions, a young woman becomes the mother of all sea creatures. After being promised into marriage by her father, she is married to a man who turns out to be part bird. However, upon discovering how unhappy she is with her new husband, Sedna's father attempts to rescue her, but they are attacked by a flock of birds, and their kayak is capsized. Sedna sank to the bottom of the ocean and there she became a powerful spirit. Now at home on the ocean floor, she becomes a mermaid, with the head and torso of a woman and the tail of a fish.
