As a teacher in the North, I often get emails from teacher friends down south asking about Inuit Mythology and if I know where they can find some resources to share with their colleagues and students. Here's several that I've found pretty useful in planning for courses next term.
Inuit Myths A site developed through QIA (Qikiqtani Inuit Association) and a variety of Government and Non Government organizations, to provide a resource for Nunavummiut and people from around the world who want to learn more about the Inuit storytelling tradition. There are downloadable copies of Taiksumani (a publication of Inuit Myths that are distributed to schools and libraries) and information of Mythological beings.
Tales and Traditions of the Eskimo a digitalized version of Henry Rinks 1875 collection of Myths and Legends.
Eskimo Folk-Tales a digitized version of Eskimo Tales collected by Kund Rasmussen (1921).
First People an online collection of American Indians, First Nations and Inuit Mythology.
If anyone has any other ones that they would like to add to this list, send them my way.
