Tribal affiliation: Mi’kmaq
Alternate spellings: Pulawej, Plawej, Pilawej, Pulowwech, Blawech
Type: Hero, partridge
Pulowech is a hero of Micmac folklore. His name is usually translated as Partridge in English (our Mi’kmaq volunteer says the name literally means “ruffed grouse”), and he is identified as a bird warrior in many stories (his family members also have the names of birds). However, like many animal heroes of Woodlands Indian mythology, he is usually described as having the form of a human man during his adventures. Pulowech was probably originally a clan hero of the Mi’kmaq Bird or Feather clans.
