The three stories in this volume are well known across the Inuit world. The longest story here is the Legend of Kiviuq who is a figure of almost epic proportions. Kiviuq is spared because he is kind.

The story of Kaujjarjuq is about a man who has been taught to "be patient in suffering." His brother trains him to overcome his physical weakness and prepare to defeat his enemies.

The third story is about a proud young woman who refuses to marry, and is written in the form of a play.

Akinirmut Unipkaaqtaut was first published in 1996.
