Torngat Mountains Park

At the northern extremity of the Labrador coast, a range of high barren mountains with sharp
precipices extending inland from the sea was known to traditional Inuit as the abode of the master
spirit in their mythology. Their name for the region, Torngait meaning a place of spirits, derived
from the presence of Torngarsoak who was believed to control the life of sea animals and took the
form of a huge polar bear.”
