LOOKING FOR BEAVER
From Salt Mountain, Glooscap was chasing a beaver. The Beaver made holes in Indian Island (Elnuwe’e Minigu) trying to get under it. He did get under, went to Elguanik, and came out at Tewil (Grand Narrows).
The rock Glooscap threw at the beaver became Little Island. The lesser of the two elevations of Indian Island was made by the soil thrown by Glooscap. From Salt Mountain, Glooscap could make Indian Island in one step, i.e. stand with one foot on the Mountain and the other on the Island.
Little Island is said to consist of rock rising about ten feet out of the water. But, as it is still under the spell of Glooscap, if anybody goes on the rock, he feels he couldn’t come down.
