Introducing The Windigo, Page 4-

Cassie Greenaway was a Graduate Student, at University College, specializing in Graduate Student at University College.

Her specialty was organic agriculture, specifically Companion Planting, and The “Three Sisters”, the main agricultural crops grown by some Native American nations in North Americawinter squashmaize (corn), and climbing beans

Her allergies, asthma and sensitivities were manageable; but, that was before another student contaminated her specimens, and Cassie was transformed into the person the media had dubbed “The Windigo”.

Cassie and her Grandmother were seen before in Introducing The Windigo, Page 2 -Page 3, and Page 5.

When she saw the UN deadlocked in another debate, on Climate Change and protecting water, Treaty Rights, and the environment, she knew she had to say something.

Without even knowing how, she found herself there, addressing the delegates; and, just as suddenly, vanishing away, again.

Now, she needs to get to her Aunt Carol, a Doctor, as soon as possible; and, get the medical attention, she needs.

Memo:

Cassie, a.k.a. “The Windigo”, the others, and scenarios are Original Character.  

I wonder what will happen next.

Introducing The Windigo, Page 4-

Cassie’s Grandmother, Emily, knew that it was her Granddaughter, who had been on the news, appearing and disappearing, at the UN, urging them to act on Climate Change, and protecting water, the environment, and Treaty Rights, before it was too late.

She turned the sound off the news and prayed, to “whatever is sacred” to “protect her and bring her home”.

Then, a light appeared in front of her lighting up the room. Although, she had to avert her eyes; she reached out; and, pulled Cassie into the room, out of the aether, and into her arms, in a tight hug.

“Nana, I had to tell them,” Cassie said. “I had to warn them.”

“I know, Darling. And, you’re back, now,” her Grandmother wept.

“Don’t they realize they’re eating the future,” Cassie said, shaking her head.

“I don’t know, dearest,” her Grandmother said. “But, first, we have to get you out of those clothes and get you to see your Aunt Carol.”

Cassie hugged her Grandmother closer, “Yes, Nana.”

Emily started to peel off Cassie’s backpack and hoodie.

“Don’t they know, they’re being so unnatural,” Cassie asked, exhausted. “Don’t they know that they’re risking invoking the wrath of The Windigo,” she asked.

“I don’t know,” her Grandmother admitted.  And, she shuddered to think that they were soon going to find out.

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… 

[3] 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).

--------------------------------------------

Now, that the media and authorities have branded her as an eco-terrorist, “The Windigo”;
It will be interesting to see what happens next.
