As well, the culture was used as a basis for the indigenous peoples in the book. My research is still ongoing, and some of the sources I've found have been written from a white lens, which is something I've kept in mind when determining what information to use. I worked with someone from Iqaluit to help ensure the mythology came from the same region. When choosing a culture to base my story on, I ask myself what the heart of that culture is. The pieces that make up their identity. In the case of the Inuit, I heavily focused on their naming customs, community/family, and the resilience of the human spirit.

Since I'm not Inuit, my perspective is limited. This story is not a substitute for Inuit or indigenous voices. At the end of the day, I focus on writing flawed, relatable characters and remaining true to the story.(less)
