Inuit Legends I and II were originally broadcast on Ideas on CBC Radio One. Bilingual CDs are available for purchase on CBC Shop online.

These were the first of the Legends series and through these the formula was established to continue recording traditional oral legends from elders in First Nations communities around Canada. They were very well received by both Inuktitut-speaking and English speaking audiences regionally and nationally.
