Glooscap statue for the Mi’kmaq in Nova Scotia
Kluscap (Glooscap) is an Abenaki word meaning "man from nothing." As explained on the Glooscap Heritage Centre website, Glooscap is the first human, "created out of a bolt of lightning in the sand and remains a figure that appears in many of the Mi'kmaq legends. These legends are stories that are passed down from generation to generation and tell of the Mi'kmaq culture."
The statue has become the focal point of the Glooscap Interpretive Centre at the Truro Power Centre on Highway 102. The centre features a gift shop, visitor information centre, Aboriginal gallery and a hundred-seat theatre.
