A cannibal Giantess from the tales of the Kwakiutl Native American people of British Colombia. She lived in a house in the middle of a dense forest where she would keep her slave children. She would venture out to capture children to take back as slaves or to eat. Her soul was kept beneath the floorboards which thus made her invisible. A hero named ‘Sky Boy’ tracked this monster down and entered into her house. He tried to shoot arrows at her but missed. One arrow fell into the floor at the exact location of her soul, piercing it. She died immediately and all the children were set free.
