Raven and the King Salmon

 

Raven (Yéll) journeyed by foot along the coast from Dry Bay toward Yakutat in the early spring. A huge spring king salmon came near the shore with its silver scales gleaming in the sun. Yéll continued to walk along the shore with one eye on the water where the huge spring king salmon had been. Soon it came up again, silver scales gleaming.

YélI could see it was one of the fattest salmon he had ever seen. His mouth watered. He rushed ahead and found a green stone which he put on another large rock and then waited for the fat salmon. When it surfaced, he called out, "King Salmon, listen to me and listen to the bad names this little green stone is calling you."

King Salmon ignored Yéll. He rolled on the surface of the water, dove and came up again. Yéll again called out, "King Salmon, my partner, this little green stone, is insulting you. Listen to the names it is calling you. You have such a big nose. You have a big mouth."

King Salmon glanced at the little green stone and dove, but he came right back up. Yéll called again, "My partner, I think you should come ashore now. The green stone says you have big eyes and you are a coward!"

This made the king salmon angry and he charged ashore where Yéll was ready with a club. He clubbed the salmon to death and prepared it for a feast.
