I'm not familiar with any particular legends concerning aliens and the Inuit, although I know that the Yukon seems to be a "hotbed" of UFO
activity. (The Yukon does not have Inuit, I think they are Dene).
The story of the origin of the Haida sounds like they were maybe brought to the Queen Charlottes in a spaceship. They describe it as a clam, from
which the first Haida emerged onto a beach. The legend is the subject of a famous sculpture by Bill Reid.
There are lots of native legends which allude to potential contact experiences with aliens or starpeople.
I recall reading about one legend where a tribe migrating west from eastern Canada to the Lake Superior region, following a "shell" in the sky.
I also recall reading a legend from the west coast Kwakiutl where a "thunderbird" helped a chief build his large long house by picking up the main
roof beam and setting it down. Reading some legends of Thunderbirds, I think they used the same word to describe the craft and the occupants who they
interacted with from these craft. (Although that is just my interpretation which might be wrong)
