Indians believe in many gods and spirits ; but no one of these is a Great Spirit, in the sense in which we use the term. However, every tribe has some legend of a creator, or first-maker, to whom the tribe owes its origin. Two considerable collections of Abnaki myths have been made. The Rev. Silas Rand, fifty years a missionary to the Micmacs, recorded legends of that tribe ; they were published after his death, in 1894. In 1883 and 1884, Charles G. Leland collected legends from the Penobscot and Passamaquoddy tribes, publishing them in 1885. These two collections are authorities for most of the tales in this book. For the eighth tale, MacLean's " Canadian Savage Folk," and for the tenth tale, the " Tenth Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology," are authorities.
