We have reached the peak of civilization, having attained unparalleled knowledge and science. Everything that happens as a consequence of self-indulgence has a scientific explanation and case. Several occurrences in world history, however, have yet to be scientifically proved.
This article recounts an incident that happened in the previous century in the tiny Inuit settlement of Anjikuni (Angikuni) and remains a mystery to this day.
Anjikuni Village’s Disappearance:
In 1932, a Canadian fur trapper paid a visit to a settlement near Anjikuni Lake in Canada. He was acquainted with the location since that was where he exchanged his fur and spent his free time. On this trip, he arrived at the hamlet and immediately sensed something was wrong. Despite the fact that there had been people there before, he found it abandoned and quiet. He realized that the stew had been allowed to boil while the fire was left unattended. He saw that the doors were open and that delicacies were waiting to be prepared. Hundreds of Anjikuni villagers seemed to have vanished, never to be seen again. There is still no conclusive reason for Anjikuni village’s complete disappearance.
Anjikuni Village’s Strange Case:
Anjikuni Lake is named after a lake in the Kivaliq Region of Nunavut, Canada. The richness of fish and water in the lake is well-known. We all know that fishing is one of the world’s most fundamental vocations. Anglers created a colonial colony on the banks of Anjikuni Lake as a consequence.
According to natural laws and the descendants of extra individuals, a group of Eskimos’ Inuit started living around the Lake for fishing and gradually expanded into a hamlet of roughly 2000 to 2500 people. After the Lake, the town was given the name “Anjikuni.”
Anjikuni is a popular destination for alcoholics.
Anjikuni was notable for wood distillation, which created a sort of wine, in addition to fishing. To stay warm, residents made wood-brew, which drew alcohol connoisseurs from all across the area. The ease of brewing wood wine, as well as the people’s simplicity and open attitudes, drew many alcohol aficionados to the hamlet.
Joe Labelle, a hunter from Canada, was also a beer connoisseur. On a dismal night in November 1930, Joe walked up on the road to the raucous village of Anjikuni, in love with wood wine. For him, it had been a fascinating journey. Joe noticed he was running late after a few hours and couldn’t wait any longer for his favorite wine, so he started jogging. While drinking wine from his glass, he imagined himself having a wonderful talk with the Anjikuni people.
After approaching the hamlet, he saw a strange eerie silence and a thick fog that blanketed the whole Anjikuni village. He first questioned if he’d made a mistake by choosing that old path. What about the homes, though? He saw that the places were identical to Anjikuni’s. Then he concluded that the locals were probably so tired that they all went asleep on such a cold and lonely winter night, leaving the hamlet still and quiet for him.
Joe then came to a complete stop in front of a home, then another, then another, expecting to see someone. As he proceeded farther into the community, he got more afraid. The whole town was engulfed in a mystical aura, sending out terrifying messages about something weird that had happened here just before he arrived.
He had never encountered anything like this when he initially came in this area. This village’s residents are noted for their warmth. They always welcome their visitors, whether it’s day or night, and make delicious meals for them. This is why some of their special visitors, such as Joe, came back again and time again.
Joe, on the other hand, makes his way to the homes of his friends and addresses them by name after a long time of not seeing anybody. But who’s who, exactly? His voice is echoed by the cold that has returned to his ears.
Joe decides to knock on a door after disturbing the village residents with his loud voice, and this time he finds the door open. Then he goes inside and finds a family’s food, clothing, children’s toys, daily utensils, clothes, and everything else in its place, but no one is there. What a delightful surprise! Everyone else in the area seems to have gone elsewhere, so he goes into another room, where he finds some half-cooked rice packed in the oven on the still-burning stove. He finds a similar situation at the neighboring home.
Everything the villagers used was in its place in almost every room, but the villagers had disappeared. Joe ultimately understood that he was the last one left in the hamlet. After finding out this knowledge, he was horrified!
Something had gone wrong, he realized now. Not everyone is able to leave the community in this way. And even if they did, they’d have to leave a trace since the paths and grounds were completely covered with snow. However, Joe was surprised to see that the impressions were just on his footwear.
Speculations and an ineffective investigation:
He raced to the closest Telegraph office and informed the Hill Police Forces of what he had seen. The police were sent to the village right away. They looked for the locals for a long time but couldn’t find them. However, what they uncovered was a bleeding ritual.
They saw that practically every grave in the local cemetery was empty and had been taken by someone. They heard 7 sled dogs wailing and found their starving, pale, practically dead bodies hidden below a thin layer of light ice, as though fighting death.
They made a valiant effort to protect their masters, but they were unsuccessful.
Following then, the Anjikuni Mass Disappearance case was impossible to be solved by police and intelligence agencies. Villagers in the area of the Inuit community afterward reported seeing a blue light in the hamlet that disappeared into the northern sky. Many people believe the Anjikuni were taken by aliens and that the blue lights were their ship.
The amazing accident occurred immediately before Joe Labelle arrived in that hamlet, according to a later investigation report, and the customary snowfall caused their footprints to freeze. But it was too late to inform the rest of the world that no one had come in from the outside, and no one had left.
Joe Labelle revealed the following to media about his shocking discovery:
“I could tell something wasn’t right immediately away… Since they were half-cooked, I knew they had been disturbed during dinner preparation. Every hut has a rifle next to the door, and no Eskimo goes anywhere without it… “I felt something terrible had occurred.”
The kidnapping, according to Labelle, was the act of a local deity called Torngarsuk, the Inuits’ evil sky god. Joe Labelle’s allegation was later shown to be inaccurate in a second investigation report. Because there are fewer human settlements in that area, he may have never visited and never known someone who lived there.
Why did the police, other news organizations, and intelligence agencies go there if this is the case? How did they come upon the abandoned homes, dispersed materials, and armament on the property? Who would choose to live in such a harsh and inhospitable environment, shut off from the rest of the world?
