Medoonak the Stormmaker

Top of page

A Mi’kmaq legend, colourfully interpreted in mime, dance and narration by elaborately garbed and masked actors of the Mermaid Theatre of Wolfville, Nova Scotia. The story tells how Medoonak, reckless ruler of the winds and the seas, was persuaded to quieten his magical wings and calm the churning waters so that the Mi’kmaq fishermen could catch food for their starving people.
