~Welcome To the Myths and Legends~

~The Coming of Gluscabi-Legend~

The tribe is Abernaki from the Northeast Woodlands where this legend comes from

After Tabaldak had finished making human beings he dusted his hands off
and some of that dust sprinkled on the Earth.

From that dust Gluscabi formed himself. He sat up from the Earth and said,
"Here I am." So it is that some of the Abenaki people call Gluscabi by another name,
"Odzihozo," which means, "the man who made himself from something."
He was not as powerful as Tabaldak, The Owner, but like his grandchildren,
the human beings, he had the power to change things, sometimes for the worse.

When Gluscabi sat up from the Earth, the Owner was astonished.
"How did it happen now that you come to be?" he said.

Then Gluscabi said,
"Well, it is because I formed myself from this dust left over from the first humans that you made."

"You are very wonderful." The Owner told him.

"I am wonderful because you sprinkled me." Gluscabi answered.

"Let us roam around now." said the Owner.
So they left that place and went uphill to the top of a mountain.
there they gazed about, open-eyed, so far around they could see.
They could see the lakes, the rivers, the trees, how all the land lay, the Earth.

Then the Owner said, "Behold here how wonderful is my work.
By the wish of my mind I created all this existing world, oceans, rivers, lakes."
And he and Gluscabi gazed open-eyed.

Please take the wolf and send her on her way around the world to continue her walk
in the name of the plight of the animals who cannot speak
for themselves yet continue to die at the hands of humans.

A Lakota Prayer

Great Spirit, you are everything
And yet above everything
You are first and always have been
Through you our children will have strong hearts
And they will walk the straight path in a sacred manner
Help me to walk the sacred path of life
Without difficulty
With my mind and heart continually fixed on you!
