Long ago, near the beginning of the world, Grey Eagle guarded the sun, moon, stars, water, and fire. But Grey Eagle hated people. He hated them so much that he kept these things hidden away, and the people lived in cold and darkness.
I'm so ashamed. I know what I must do
Grey Eagle had a beautiful daughter who fancied Raven, for Raven was a handsome white bird who loved Grey Eagle’s daughter in return.
I'm gonna save everyone!!!
He was invited to the longhouse of Grey Eagle. Raven looked about the walls of the lodge and saw the sun, the moon, the stars, water, and fire.
One down... four to go!
Raven was ashamed of Grey Eagle for hiding them, and knew what he must do. When no one was watching, he stole all these things from the lodge of Grey Eagle
He flew with them right up the smoke hole of the long house. He flew and he flew, higher and higher.
He hung the sun as high as he could in the sky. It made so much light that he was able to escape all the way to an island far out in the ocean.
