  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • Once the great Picabo Tribe was living in the West Virginia area. Their Manito's name was Sojourner and they held the tradition of having empathy dearly to their hearts. This is Sojo who eats crickets for nourishment.
  • Climax
  • One day a member of the tribe, Crustacean, was walking through the forest after a successful hunt with the tribe's spiritual leader, Ethonious. Crustacean was complaining about not having a bigger kill since the dear was small. Ethonious told him to be grateful for some such as Sojo had to eat crickets to survive.
  • Falling Action
  • When they got back to the tribe Ethonious was getting frustrated with Crustacean. He said he was going to upset Sojourner. But Crustacean did not stop and started laughing at Sojo for eating crickets and then he started to steal Sojo's crickets.
  • Resolution
  • Sojo was pretending to be a member of the tribe but he was actually Sojourner. He was disappointed in Crustacean for not showing empathy and was taking for granted what he already had. Enraged Sojourner unleashed this horrible disaster of swirling wind or fury that tore up the land and swallowed up Ethonious and Crustacean.
  • When the winds finely calmed Sojouner came down to where Crustacean and Ethonious had landed. Realizing what he had down Crustacean wept and Ethonious scowled at him for being such a fool. Sojourner said that now whenever someone does not have empathy for others a tornado will be unleashed on the world. 
  • Both Crustacean and Ethonious knelt in front of the great god and said that they would pass this lesson for all of time. Still though incidents would happen and a devastating tornado was unleashed. That is why it is important to show empathy to others and how tornadoes were created.
