The Innu say the evil creature, Uentshukumishiteu, is able to travel anywhere on the water and under the water and it is able to break through the ice. It can also travel under the ground and through rocks.

My father talked about the evil creature Uentshukumishiteu. During the night, they heard the ice cracking at a far distance. They were camped near MacKenzie River. He said the ice had the shape of a circle as if something had broken through it. Yet the ice was very thick. What could have broken the ice like that if not the evil creature called Uentshukumishiteu?
