Greenlandic Pissaap Inua = 'the Master of Power'

In the legend about Kâgssagssuk and Kamigdlánguaĸ in West Greenland, Kâgssagssuk must suffer excessively before he - through the mediation of Pissaap Inua - gains supreme strength and subdues his tormentors. Pissaap Inua twists Kâgssagssuk around his huge tail and whirls him around to the extent that, that which prevents his growth is hurled away in the form of children's toys.
