A colossal Giant from North America from the folklore of the Pequot people. He was known as ‘The Great Eater Glutton’ for he had an insatiable appetite and was constantly hunting for food. He lived alone on an island and one day he saw a beautiful woman on the beach. He wooed her to be his wife and the women did so under the Chahnameed’s enchantment. Chahnameed preferred to hunt alone and left his wife home for long periods. The woman tried to escape but felt she could not due to the enchantment cast on her. She created a plan and bit-by-bit, she built effigies made from her faeces and combined them with shells and painted them. When her plan was completed Chahnameed returned and found that he was surrounded by effigies, which screamed at him whenever he moved. While shocked and distracted, the woman escaped on a canoe. The Giant ran after her and waded through the water. He grabbed the canoe to reclaim his slave wife, but the woman took one strand of her hair, which transformed into a spear. She threw this at Chahnameed who sunk into the waters never to return.
