Amala is a mythological giant who supports the world in the mythology of the Tsimshian, Nass, Skidegate, Kaigani, Massett, and Tlingit Native Americans. He supports the Earth which he balances on a spinning pole. He receives an annual application of wild duck-oil to his muscles from a servant which brings relief to his muscles. The belief is that when all the ducks are hunted out, there will no longer be any duck-oil available in the world. At this point, Amala dies and the world topples off the pole and comes to an end.

  • Amala (Am'ala’ literalmente "agujero de humo" se refiere a que era muy sucio) es el Gigante de la mitología tsimshian (tsimshian) que sujeta el poste sobre el que gira el mundo. Amala yace sobre su espalda mientras lo sostiene y su fuerza se renueva temporalmente cada año a base de friegas de grasa de pato en su espalda, que cada vez es más escasa. Se dice que cuando el último pato sea cazado y ya no haya más grasa de pato en el mundo, Amala morirá y el mundo llegará a su fin. (es)
