New - Legends & Selkirks 2014

NEW 
LEGENDS 
&
SELKIRKS
2014




Selkirk's are creatures that live and are found in Faroese, Icelandic Ireland and Scotland.
They are able to become human by taking off their seal skins and can return to a seal form by returning to the sea with their seal skin that they usually leave in a hidden spot near caves by the ocean where humans can't find them.
Stories concerning Selkirk's are generally romantic
Tragedies...
Sometimes the human will not know that their lover is a
Selkie and will wake up the next morning to find them
Gone!
Other times the human [Usually male] will hide the female
Selkirk's skin, thus preventing them from beginning able
to return to their seal form and into the sea. And of
course their true families.
A Selkirk can only make contact with one
particular human for a short period of time, before they
must return to the sea.
They are not able to make contact with that human
again for seven years, unless the human has stolen their Selkirk's skin and hidden it or even some have burn some...!
In the Faroe Island there are two version of this
Story: The Selkirk's or Seal Wife.
A young farmer from the town of Mikladalur on
Kalsoy island goes to the beach to watch
the Silkies dance. He hides the skin of one of the
beautiful Selkirk maidens, so she can't go back
into the seas with her other sisters and forces her to
marry him. The Farmer keeps her skin in a chest and always keeps  the chest locked. And the key with him both day and night.
Although there is one day when he is out fishing, he discovers, 
that he has forgotten to bring this key to the chest. When 
he returns home, his wife of many years, that was the 
young maiden Selkirk dancing on the beach had escaped
back to the sea, leaving their children behind. Later, when
the farmer is on a ocean hunt, he kills her Selkirk husband and the two Selkirk sons they had together. She of course promises to 
take revenge upon the men of Mikladalur. 
This is what the curse of the Mikladalur Men 
fell to because of their actions:
"Some shall be drowned, some shall fall from cliffs
and slopes and this shall continue, until so many 
men have been lost that they will be able to link 
arms around the whole island of 
Kallsoy! 
Male Selkies are very handsome in their human form
and have great seductive powers over female women.
They typically will seek those who are dissatisfied with
their romantic life. This includes married women waiting
for their fisherman husbands too!
If a woman wishes to make contact with a
Selkirk Male, all she has to do is just go to the
beach and shed seven tears into the sea.
If a man steals a females Selkirk's skin, she is in his power,
to an extent and she is forced to become his wife - a regional
variant on the motif of the swan maiden, unusual in that the breeds animal form is usually a bird.
In legend the Female Selkie are said to make
excellent wives, but because their true home is the sea,
they will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean.
If  she finds her skin again, she will immediately
return to her true home, and sometimes to her
Selkie husband,in the sea.
Sometimes, a Selkirk maiden is taken as a wife by a human
man and she has several children by him.
In these stories, it is one of her children who is the one who
discovers her sealskin and she soon will take the sealskin
from her child and return to the sea.
Sometimes she will tell her half/Selkirk children
what she is and where her true home is, but this
only happens rarely.
Usually the Selkirk will avoid seeing her human child but she
sometimes will if she had a strong connection
with them. As for the human husband they will never
have any contact with them ever again , but their children
they might see them when they are close by the
ocean or swimming in the sea or even sometimes
will play with them in the waves.
Silkies are not always faithless lovers.
One tale tells of the fisherman Cagan
who married a seal-woman. Against his wife's wishes he
set sail dangerously late in the year and was
trapped battling a terrible storm, unable to return home.
His wife shifted to her seal form and saved him, even though this meant she could never return to her human body and hence her happy home.
Some stories from Shetland have Silkies luring islanders
into the sea at midsummer, the lovelorn humans never return to
dry land. Seal shape-shifters similar to the Selkie
exist in the folklore of many cultures too.
ORIGINS:
One theory of the origins is the belief is that the Selkirk's were actually a fur-clad Finns, traveling by kayak. Another is that a shipwrecked of Spaniard washed ashore and their jet black hair resemble seals. "As the anthropologist. A Asbjorn Jon has recognized though, there is a strong body of lore that
indicates that Selkirk's are said to be supernatural formed from the souls of drowned people."
There is other theories and stories that are related to
The Selkie and other seal-people.
These are "The Great Silkier of Sule Skerry and
the movie the Secret of Roan Irish.
In the Secret of Roan Irish, it about a fisherman
who steals the Selkirk's pelt while she is sunbathing.
She is then forced to return to his house, as she cannot escape
back to the sea, and becomes his wife and bears him children.
The skin of the seal give her power over men, but without it she
is a mortal woman, trapped on land and a slave to the whims of her
husband. The life there slowly suffocates her and she
spends much of her time splashing in the shallows of the ocean.
Years later, one of the children sees the pelts and asks what is this?
The wife immediately knows, drops what she is doing and
retrieves the pelt from the its hiding place, where her child has
shown her. Having long ago despaired of ever finding it.
She does not hesitate; Not even a word to her children. She
rushes to the ocean to return to her former life as a
Seal..
