The First People


Bored and frustrated with the new animals, Raven and Eagle find a giant clam shell with the first men inside. Raven takes charge of the men, teaching them to hunt and make fire, but they are useless and he grows tired of them. They find another shell, this time with the first women inside, but they just make things worse. Raven decides to get rid of them, and coaxing them back into the shell he pushes it back out to sea. A year passes and Raven and Eagle find the clam shells empty on the beach, and beyond, a village of the first people with their children.
