Kiviuq had special powers and his fame was well known by all Inuit in different regions because he was a talented prosperous man. He was always helping the less fortunate and got along well with everyone. He was a good man and was popular because of his kindness and generosity. It was the time of season when the Inuit were camping on the coastal area as it was the time of year when they were stocking up on sea mammals for the winter for food as well as for oils for their (kudliks) oil lamps. It was spring time.
