Adlets, also called Erqigdlets, are a mythological sapient species in Inuit mythology.


Adlets are men with a lower body shaped like a dog's; these canine legs allow them to run faster than other men and make them stand taller. They have conflictuous relationships with Inuit men, often ending up fighting them. They were the descendants of the five sons of the woman Uinigumissuitung and the sapient dog Ijirqang, whom Uinigumissuitung had sent to live abroad for fear that her father would kill them because of their eldritch appearance.
