Statue of Glooscap Statue, Mi’kmaq Legend, Native, Indian, Man

I saw the majestic statue of Glooscap when driving near Truro, Nova Scotia, by the Glooscap Interpretive Center located on Highway 102.

The statue stands 12 meters (app. 39 feet) high.

Mi’kmaq legends say Glooscap is the first human, created out of a bolt of lightning hitting the earth.

Story of Glooscap is one of creation;

The first man, Glooscap, is created from a bolt of lightning. The bolt hits the Earth and his body is created on the Earth’s surface. He is lying with his head in the direction of the rising sun and his feet are facing the setting sun. His arms are outstretched to the north and south. When the lightning meets with the elements of the Earth that make up Glooscap’s body, a life force is created. When lightning hits a second time, Glooscap develops fingers and toes, and seven sacred parts to his head (two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and a mouth) appear. At the third bolt of lightning, Glooscap is freed from the surface of the Earth to walk and move about. Glooscap gives thanks to Mother Earth and Grandfather Sun for his creation, and pays his respects to the South, the West, the North and the East directions. Once returning to the east where he was created, Glooscap is visited by an eagle that tells him he will soon be joined by his family to help him understand his place in this world. The eagle drops a feather, which Glooskap catches. This feather gives him strength and serves as a symbol of connection between his people and the Giver of Life, Grandfather Sun and Mother Earth

Much appreciated @ecency!

What a wonderful myth Jo, I have learned that the indigenous are the keepers of Gaia, Mother Earth. The cosmos works in ways that we cannot understand and I wish we could. These stories reinforce this so thank you I enjoyed learning about Glooscap. 💗
ps: I like the silver fox's spiky wet hair style, he looks to have a lot of character.

Thanks Angie. I enjoy the myths and legends of the indigenous people. They have a great respect for the earth and Mother Nature.

The silver fox was soaking wet. I haven’t seen him lately.

Have a wonderful Thursday, my friend. ❤️

I see red foxes from time to time, but the silver fox looks so much better in my eyes, especially wet it looks cute 🤩
I like the story of Glooscap and who knows, maybe it all began this way and not with two people, a snake and an apple 😉

!BEER and !WINE - both make a nice dinner with !PIZZA :)

I was thinking the same thing about the legend of Glooscap, Hannes. If we replaced the lightning bolt with God it bears some resemblance to the bible version of how man was formed of the dust of the ground.

I would have liked to have photographed the silver fox when he was dry too but I haven’t seen him since the rainy day.

Thanks so much for your appreciation and generosity dear Hannes.

Wishing you a great Tuesday!🤗

Oh yes, that's true, but I like the version with the lighting bolt too⚡

One day the silver fox will return and pose nicely for you ☺️

My pleasure, dear Jo, I am wishing you also a pleasant Tuesday 🤗🌞

!BEER and !PIZZA - nice 😃
