Enukins: The little people that live underground in the Arctic.
I enjoyed reading the write up on enukins. I remember when I first got to Kotzebue in April, 2004. I heard a patient at the hospital telling me about them. I laughed (of course) silently and entertained the lady. She was a lovely elder and full of wisdom. This one side trip she had taken me on was of great curiosity. Not long later, another person made a reference to them. She was from the village of Noatak, and made a similar remark. Well, long story short, after hearing from about a dozen people, I grew even more curious. On my my two lower Noatak trib floats (Kelly and Kugururok) I had several small things happen in camp. Things were moved and some were just missing. I am rather type A and put everything in its place. You know the type. I keep most of my observations to myself as my best friend and younger brother (from NC) would surely not believe me. It was two years later on the Kug that the same thing happened. Lets just say, when it comes to enukins, I am not as skeptical as most.This is the subject of this TOPIC.Lets take a trip and explore some of the land here in the Arctic.
some of what I am about to tell you will seem preposterous, but just ask ANY PERSON that lives in any village from
Nome clear up to Barrow, all of the villages of the entire North Slope Region, will tell you that what I am about to
TRY AND EXPLAIN is "true". Do I have photos ? not yet, but working on it, there has to be a way to prove this.
with recent giant advances in technology I am sure it will become possible to "catch" & record proof of the
Ignaugalurauks.. .. The Little People, that live underground, and in caves here above the Arctic circle.
This is no legend, or folklore, as new sightings are prevelant constantly, each and every year.!!
I will tell you stories and provide photographs of all that "can be seen" in this vast huge expanse of area of
several hundred thousand of square miles. THINGS HAPPEN OUT HERE.. .. ... ... that just do not make sense!!
For instance.. ha ha.. you are NOT GOING TO BELIEVE WHAT I AM ABOUT TO EXPLAIN.. you have to be here to experience
these happenings, no matter what I type, you will be very skeptical and doubtful ONLY because.. you know better,
this does not happen where YOU LIVE.
Lets start.. .. at the beginning so you have a better understanding of what is going on up here.. .. frequently,
reports abound.. .. in each and every village!! This is a vast area we are talking about in square miles.
roughly the size of ALL the New England STATES put together.. .. EMPTY !!
Ok.. nOW A Long TIME before the whaling companies arrived .. .. .. The Ingnakalaurak's LIVED AMONG the people of
One of their young was eaten by a dog.. .. and they moved out of the village. These people are small, 3-4 feet in
They live the ol ways, to this very day, dressed in caribou skins. They still hunt with bow & arrow. They live
underground, and in caves all throughout this vast area.
They possess super human qualities, that you WILL NEVER BELIEVE:
They are incredibly strong and they can run, incredibly fast.. they sneak around the villages "stealing food".
When any hunter, shots and kills a caribou, it requires two adult Inupiaq men to lift that caribou to place on a
sled. It only takes ONE Ingnakalaurak to pick one up ...........and RUN WITH IT. Over his head (person carrying
animal) running, with a dead caribou. ??? Bush Pilots have reported seeing caribou.. moving, quickly, in a
horizontal position ???
Well, lets stop right here and let me extend an invitation to you. Anyone, come on up here, talk to the bush pilots.
They will tell you.. what they have seen with their own eyes, but you will not believe them, becuase, YOU KNOW
BETTER. even though you have never been up here or heard of this before.
Come on up !! See and experience it for yourself.
HAVE I GOT YOUR ATTENTION NOW ?? good. I have no need to lie or exagerate about any of what goes on up here. I have
no problem with the truth however I do have a huge problem with Liars and phoneies. that is why I stay up here in
the Arctic.. Heaven on Earth. IMHO.
Luke Koonuk was out hunting many miles from Point Hope, Imagine this, you travel hundreds of miles into a vast empty
area, Luke's 4 whell honda was stuck in the mud. He had tried and tried and tried to life or get it out of the ruts
to get free. He was exhausted bent over huffing and puffing, Exausted, bent over,.. .. suddenly out of the corner of
his eye he sees,.............His honda rise in the air and come bouncing down on firmer ground and somethibng, a
blur, was running away.
When ANY HUNTER IS LOST.. .. .. stuck. .. .. in trouble.. these people appear out of no where to assist and wisk
away..Gone in a flash.
TOO MANY people up here have had too many experiences,.. .. !! I could go on and on with stories of what goes on up
here and I promise to tell .. all I have experienced during my almost 3 decades of living among the Inupiaq peoples.
Hunters, experienced hunters often talk about caribou that they have shot & killed. Dead. & it disappears before
they reach it.
Make no mistake, these people are very good in what they do, they are perhaps the best hunters in the world.
Jump on a 4 wheel honda or a snowmobile, and go 200 miles out into this empty region.....@ 50 below zero and stay
out there for weeks... YOu see a caribou and shoot it, it falls down, motionless, they wait and watch. have a
smoke. wait and watch. We do not waste time out here, driving. gas is too expensive. well over 5,00 per gallon for
years up here.
That caribou is dead, said Joe Oktillik, I got on my machine and drove over those hills,. and ?? where is it? I
know this is the spot, there is no blood anyplace, no tracks to the left or the right and no tracks going straight
ahead...The last place I looked Joe said.. .. was up ! Caribou is gone, no tracks??????????
This happens a lot up here.
I am not going to waste time here tring to convince anyone. Come on up.. .. go out there.;. and see what happens. I
can be your guide. Or connect you to a reputable source. The best time to come on up here, is in June during whaling
festival, in Barrow; I live here now, and I am inviting any and all that wish to see, experience, life in the
arctic. Although my house is small, I can comfortably fit 4 people @ any time. I have two spare rooms in my two
story house here in Barrow Alaska. There are 5 adults living in this toasty warm house and two rooms to spare for
any who wish to visit the Arctic @ the top of the world in Barrow. There are also a few hotels in town, but they do
not offer free home cooked meals,5 times per day if necessary !!!
So lets talk about "what goes on up here in the arctic... ... ...
STRANGE THINGS YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE!!!!
there is so much more to come.!!!
This plane ride to Barrow is 400 miles from Point Hope, a four hour flight, A hundred dollars per hour to fly.
My aim is to find a way to prove this, using today's modern technologies and some helpers that want to wander out into the wilderness, to capture on FILM, these elusive people.
An expedition of sorts for once and for all to prove this one way or the other.
Realize this: that any photographs of this unknown civilization would be priceless and would make the "photographers" filthy rich in many more ways than you can imagine.
