He was the creator of the world according to the Abnaki Indians. From his mother's body he made wonderful things and anything pleasant. His twin brother Malsun made horrible things. Later Glooskap was killed by him, but Glooskap brought himself back to life. Then he finished the world and turned Malsun into a wolf. Later, he helped men and gave them gifts. He is associated with strength and wisdom. He is also known as Nanabozho.
