Tah'-low the Thunder and Tah'-kip’ the Lightning

Koo-la'-is ka'-sum the mother Deer died, leaving two boy fawns. Their uncle, O'-ye the Coyote-man, sent them away to the east, where they still live.

Once when the country was very dry an old woman who wanted water, but could not find any, went and looked at the boy fawns, and they tore her eyes out. That made Tah'-kip' the Lightning. Then they took the dry skin of Koo'-le the Bear, and shook it. That made Tah'-low the Thunder. Then Oo'-pah the Rain came.
