The name “GLOOSCAP” is taken from the legendary figure “GLOOSKAP” (or GLUSKAP). According to legend Glooscap was a mighty figure in the days of the Micmacs and Maliseets, clans of the early Algonquin people, the Red Men of Canada, who ruled over the Bay of Fundy and Minas Basin from his home on Blomidon - that mighty, out-thrusting buttress of vivid rock which is the easterly extremity of the North Mountain.
