Kids skip cross clear ice
Crackling below, listen
In Inuit folklore, the Qalupaliit are strange creatures that live below the ice and in bodies of water in the Arctic. They are a cautionary tale told to children who misbehave and don’t listen. The tale is told to also scare children from going too far out on the ice alone, for they can be snatched and never returned.
