Northern Lights and Nanahboozho
The many bands that comprise the Algonquin people share a number of stories about the awe-inspiring northern lights—including a cultural hero known as Nanahboozho, who would often shape-shift into the Great Hare. One such Odawa legend says that after creating Turtle Island, Nanahboozho travelled north and built great bonfires as a way to remind his people that he was thinking of them.
