Sabawaelnu are Mi’kmaq water spirits. Like European mermaids, they have human upper bodies and fish tails. They have power over storms, but do not harm people who show them proper respect, and Mi’kmaq people who learn to interpret their songs correctly can predict the weather. Their name literally means “water people.” They are sometimes also called the Halfway People.
