After creating the Mi’kmaqs, the great Glooscap was certain that he had established harmony on earth. But a problem remained: the beavers had built a huge dam across the Restigouche River, preventing the salmon from swimming upriver as far as the camp of the Mi’kmaqs who had come to fish there. Young Mi’kmaq men were convinced they could remedy the situation. However, completely failing to put things right, they asked the loon to call Glooscap to help them. Will the beavers once more outmaneuver Master Glooscap?

The Mighty Glooscap Transforms Animals and Landscape

Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; First Nations; Mi'kmaq;

The Mighty Glooscap Transforms Animals and Landscape is a trilingual picture book that retells a Mi'kmaq legend.

Long ago, Glooscap travelled throughout the land after he created the Mi’kmaq people. Along the way Glooscap encountered giant polar bears, large squirrels, and dangerous moose. He questioned their intentions toward the people and decided that in order to maintain harmony and balance in the world he must change the habitat and size of these animals. The beaver eluded Glooscap for a time but in the end Glooscap changed the beaver too. In his efforts to create a harmonious world Glooscap created the landscape and special places such as the Reversing Falls, Partridge Island, and Grand Falls. Today the Mi’kmaq acknowledge and give thanks to Glooscap for taking care of them and for these special sites in New Brunswick.
