Cassie Greenaway was seen before as “The Windigo” in Introducing The Windigo and continues on Page 3 Page 4, and Page 5.

Memo:

Cassie, a.k.a. “The Windigo”, is an Original Character.

I can hardly wait to see where her story goes from here.

Introducing The Windigo, Page 2-

Cassie Greenaway was a Graduate Student at University College. Her specialty was organic agriculture.  

The main focus of her research was companion planting, and The “Three Sisters”, the main agricultural crops grown by some Native American nations in North Americawinter squashmaize (corn), and climbing beans (tepary beans or common beans).

This meant not only doing lab work; but, also primary research consulting Cultural Elders, to learn about cultivating “The Three Sisters”.

Cassie’s asthma, allergies, and sensitivities were mostly manageable.

But, she didn’t know that another Grad Student was not only making her sick, with her perfume; but, also contaminating her specimens, which mutated her, in ways that weren’t fully known, yet.

When Cassie went to see her Aunt Carol, a Naturopathic Doctor, in the city, her Grandmother was there. Her Nana got her hooked up to the oxygen cylinder; and, went to call Carol, to tell her she was bringing Cassie in to her Clinic, to try and find out what was going on.

When, Cassie saw, on the news, that the UN was at another stalemate in their negotiations on Climate Change and Pipelines, crossing Treaty Lands, she had to tell them to act, without further delay.

Without knowing how it happened, she was there, warning them that they were, “Eating your children’s’ future!”

And, then in the next moment, she had vanished, again.

Fortunately, for Cassie, with the respirator over her face, goggles pulled down to shield her eyes from glare, and the portable oxygen cylinder, in her backpack, no one could tell that she was the person the media were calling “The Windigo”.

Notes:

[1] The Windigo, in Algonquian folklore, is a monster in the northern forests of the Atlantic Coast and Great Lakes Region of the United States and Canada.[4] 

The legend lends its name to the medical term “Wendigo Psychosis”.[6]

 In some Indigenous communities, environmental destruction and greed are also seen as a manifestation of this illness.[7]

[2] “An Environmental Illness can occur when a person is exposed to toxins or substances in the environment that may make them sick. These health hazards may be found anywhere in the environment.” (From WebMD)

“Millions have reported living with various Environmental Illnesses, such as Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), Toxic Injury, Chemical Injuryand/or Toxic Encephalopathy… asthma… allergies… and sensitivities…

Now, what will happen to Cassie? 

Now, that the media has dubbed her “The Windigo”!
