The Legend Of The Islands

A Micmac Legend

One day, as Kluskap was paddling his canoe near the International border at St. Stephen, he saw some wolves chasing a moose and a deer, who in their fear ran into the sea. They would have been killed or drowned had Kluskap not turned them all into Islands. Today they are known as Deer Island and The Wolves Islands which are part of Canada, while Moose Island is off the coast of Maine.
