A terrifying monster in the traditions and beliefs of the Inuit of eastern Hudson Bay (Canada). He and his brother kill their victims by pinning them down on their backs and drilling into their bodies. On the tundras various rock piles can be found which mark the locations where their victims were found. Ikuutayuuq was eventually killed by a powerful tuniit.
