Glooscap Looses Face


This past
winter will be remembered by those Rockcliffe residents who frequent the popular picnic spot at the mouth of the Moose River as the year that we lost Glooscap. For those not steeped in local folklore Glooscap was a Mi’kmaq god. There are many stories about him but I will have to check my sources before I start on them in a public forum. He was supposed to end up on Blomidon but my wife was always convinced that this profile, shown in the picture to the immediate left, was Glooscap right to the feathered topknot. Unfortunately as you can see in the lower picture, last winter’s storms got the better of him and Glooscap is no more.
