Polar Bears on the Prowl

They've got a sense of humour, but be warned: these beautiful creatures are not to be messed with.

Our Elders have told us to never talk about Polar Bears in a way that sounds as though we are making fun of them. Polar Bear Spirits hear every word you say about them and can do what they want to you or even attack you for speaking of them. When talking of Polar Bears, always be careful of how you speak of them for they hear you.
