Background
Purpose To not wander off to the wintry forest
Country Inuit mythology and North and South Baffin

Ijiraq is a condescending Inuit and North and South Baffin boogeyman. He is a half-human half-caribou shapeshifter with an arrogant closed-eyed smile akin to racist Chinese and Southeast Asian peoples that kidnaps children, hides them away and abandons them. However, he is also misunderstood and because of the presence of inukshuk (cairns) and the children always convince him to let them go, he always changes his mind and brings the children back home.
