Ancient legend of the Micmac Indians of Nova Scotia. The rich scenic panorama of Nova Scotia’s Minas Basin gives substance to the story of Glooscap, an Indian God who was believed to live on what is now Cape Blomidon and from his mountain retreat to watch over his people in the valleys and forests below.
