Told in Dena’ina by Shem Pete of Susitna Station in 1979

This is another example of a mountain story told by the Dena’ina. Many of these stories contain powerful songs that were traditionally sung in the mountains and that helped a hunter be successful and have good weather while they were in the mountains.
