The Alom-bag-winno-sis or “The Alom,” which I shortened, are dwarfish cryptids from the folklore of the Abenaki native people. The Abenaki, according to Wikipedia are indigenous of the Americas- located in the northeastern United States as well as Eastern Canada.
Don’t see a lot of bloggers posting about cryptids –
Animals which are commonly not believed to exist, but actually may. Instances include the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, the Teratornis, and Pterodactyl, Mothmen, etc.
