The Legend of Wokun or Bloody Creek – Nova Scotia Folktale

Long before anyone really traveled and enjoyed the scenery of Nova Scotia there were small villages that did not always see eye to eye with their neighboring village. One day, two Micmac warriors from villages such as these began to quarrel. The quarreling exploded into an all out battle. Knives were pulled and these warriors began to slice each other to bits. They were fighting as it was told like two grizzly bears wanting the same game after a long winter’s nap.

One of the two warriors slipped on the muddy banks of the creek and fell in. As he fell, he lost his grip on his knife and it floated to the bottom of the creek. He tried desperately to grab his knife. His body was bloody and of course, he was in miserable pain. Each time he stretched out his hand, the knife would slip farther from his reach.

The other warrior watched as his opponent sank under the water and lay very still. There the warrior laid in the blood stained water as the other warrior walked away. A few hours later villagers found his body in the water drenched in his own blood. They pulled his body from the water and tried in vain to retrieve his knife that still slipped out of reach of anyone that tried to grab a hold of the knife. The creek was not very deep however, the knife slipped away to everyone’s surprise underneath a rock nearby.

Since that day, many have tried to retrieve the knife without any luck. Nothing has moved the knife from the location including raging waters in the spring or passerby’s that are intrigued with the mystery.

Because of this, the creek is known today as Wokun, which means knife, by the Micmac villagers, however, others know it by Bloody Creek.
