Hi dear friends and followers, welcome again the legends and myths of Native Americans.
This is the last of the myth and legends from the Native Peoples who resided in the area of what is now the State of Maine. This legend is from the Maliseet (also spelled Malecite) People. They were in the far northeastern part of the territory and into present-day New Brunswick, which is where the Saint John River empties into the Bay of Fundy.
Aglabem was a monster diety.
The Empounded Water
As a last resort, they sent a messenger to him to ask him to give the people water; but he refused, and gave the messenger only a drink from the water in which he washed. But this was not enough to satisfy even the thirst of one.
Then the people began complaining, some saying, "I'm as dry as a fish," "I'm as dry as frog," "I'm as dry as a turtle," "I'm as dry as a beaver," and the like, as they were on the verge of dying of thirst.
Then the messenger felled a tree, so that it fell on top of the monster and killed him.
