WABASSO

Algonquin God

Also known as WABOSSO

Guardian of the North and God of White Goods

The youngest brother of Chakekenapok and Manabozho, he decided to take a hike up North to touch the white sun.

Mindful of the long journey, he made sensible preparations before setting off. These included buying a map, packing thermal underwear, and turning himself into a white rabbit.

On arrival, he met the Great Magician Spirits, who taught him all he didn’t need to know about medicine and healing. Passing up a brilliant career as Dr Wabasso, MD, he gave all the info to Manabozho and became Guardian of the North instead. Now he’s the Maker of White. So when the North Winds blow and bring us snow, it is never red, green, or yellow.
