Told in Dena’ina by Antone Evan of Nondalton in 1974

This story is an example of mountain story told by the Dena’ina. Mountain stories were most often told while the Dena’ina were in the mountains trapping in the fall. These stories were traditionally only told in the mountains and were considered to be instructive for how a person is supposed to act in the mountains.
