Pamola (also known as Pamolai, P-mol-a, Pomola, and Bmola) is a legendary bird spirit that appears in Abenaki mythology.
The Indians described him as having the head of a moose, the body of a man and the wings and feet of an eagle.
Pamola is the god of Thunder and also responsible for cold weather
Pamola was said to inhabite Mt. Katahdin, the tallest mountain in Maine. Pamola was both feared and respected by the Indians, and his presence was one of the main reasons that climbing the mountain was considered taboo. It is also thought that it took its prisoners to Alomkik, located near Katahdin.
