Kkijinu Wtuoml Grandmother’s Cooking Pot

In this video, Gerald Gloade shares one of our all time favourite Kluskap stories! Listen and see how the stories animate the landscape of Mi’kma’ki.

Partridge Island is the site of unusual phenomenon — Kluskap’s grandmother’s cooking pot as told in one of the Kluskap stories. When the tide comes in twice daily, air trapped in the basalts under the ocean surface is forced out, making the water bubble like a cooking pot.
