Pleiades Pursued — Wiyot

Frog, Mouse, and Louse in the house of Pleiades have stolen a harpoon from house of the Bright Ones. In the middle of the night, Mouse had gnawed holes in their canoes, Louse had tied their hair together, and Frog had peed on their fire. Each night the Pleiades flee in their canoe across the sky, pursued by the Bright Ones. * The lesson? I didn’t make this up, but I’m trying to understand. We are surrounded by living things, some too improbably small and some too improbably vast for us to know them as they really are, but it’s all right to think of them the best we can, in the light of those who are near to us.
