This traditional Irfai tale features their cultural appreciation for hyperbole and hints at their tendency to look at fighting sea monsters as a hero's quest.

This story or poem is for logged in supporters only! Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

Grandpa used to sail out
In a coracle made of glue and fish bones

Author's Notes

I'd been thinking about the differences between the Duurludirj and the Irfai before the May 2011 Muse Fusion. With all of the ocean, water, and sea monster prompts (suitable for Sea Monster Month), The Sea Calls, How Can We Not Answer?, a Duurludirj view of the sea, came very close to simply flowing onto the screen.

This is the poem I wrote a few days later showing an Irfai tale of the sea and sea monsters. Reading the two together should give you a sense of some of the differences in Duurludirj and Irfai culture.
