"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. "
Maybe if we listen closely to her song, Mermaid Mutiny will tell us when Spring will come.

I have other accounts on DA you may have seen, and you may have seen some of the images here on those accounts. I decided to make a new account just for my mermaid stuff.
