Native American Trickster God

Also known as MANABUSH, NANABOZO, WINABOZHO, WENABOZHO

Creator Hare and alternative Trickster Rabbit

He’s the Creator Hare of the Abnaki, a God of Humanity and Medicine — and seems to be another manifestation of the Great Rabbit MANABOZHO under the name GLOOSKAP which he subsequently changed to NANABOZHO to keep us nicely bewildered.

GodNote: Sorry this Nanabozho article is a bit short. We have sent our Data Dwarves off to find more nuggets of information. Updates coming soon.
