Long ago the creator of the Micmac, Gisoolg, created the great chief Glooscap with three strokes of lightning. From his home, Glooscap watched over the creatures of the Earth and taught them important lessons. One of these lessons was: "The best way to catch a weasel is to think like a weasel."

But, just as they approached the doorway, Ableegumooch and Keeonik heard a noise in the house. It was a meeting of all the weasels and mice. ...
