Kesk Ma'sik

These words for changing from reality to non-reality are of Micmac [Maritime Algonquian] origin. Similarly, kesk matiket means a magician, and kesk mta’q means “making a magic sound” [Micmac elder Michael W. Francis, quoted in Beverly Diamond and Franziska von Rosen, Visions of Sound, 1994].
