The First Tears – Inuit Legend

Before Alaska was filled with people, the Inuit told stories of how the first tears were shed.

Many many years, man went hunting for seals along the shoreline. When he first arrived, he saw many seals just lying around in crowds together. Man became overjoyed with the thoughts of his wife and son when they saw the food that he brought home to keep them feed for many days. However, the seals began to slip into the water faster than the man could cut one with his knife. All of his food was getting away!

Man then saw a single seal all alone a long way from the water’s edge. The seal was moving a lot slower than the rest so he set his heart on this very large seal. He knew this one seal alone would keep his family feed for many days.

Man slowly inched toward the seal, which was the last one left on the shore. Just as he was approaching, the seal jumped up and slipped away into the water. Man slowly rose to his feet with an emotion he had never felt before. Water began to trickle from his eyes. He then touched the water coming from his eyes and tasted it. It tasted just like salt water. Before man knew it, he was making strange noises as if choking while the water poured from his eyes.

Son heard the strange sound and called to Woman. They ran to the waters edge to find out what was wrong with Man. When they arrived, they found Man with water pouring from both of his eyes. They were at first very afraid.

Man then told the story of all the seals that were lying around and how each one had escaped his knife. Water then began to flow from both the Woman and Son’s eyes just like that of Man. This is the how people learned to cry.
