THE LEGEND OF THE BIRDS
AND THE BEASTS
TVTOW when iheMnnltou hud created
" the earth ami the mountains by
pouting dirt and lock through a holo
in the sky, he was much pleased with
his handiwork. So he rested for many
da.vs and lived on the earth, and re
joiced in the trees ami the green
grass and the rivers and the lakes
which his strength had created.
Hut by am' by he became lonely
mill wished for some living thing to
enjoy (he beauty with him. and his
heart was sad, for there was none to
share his treasiite and none to whom
he could turn lor comfort and for
pleasure. So lie set about to ercaU
living creatures who might Inhabit
the world and make It more beautiful
with their presence.
He i etui tied to Heaven nnd tool:
his stuff, and with his stall' he went
bad, again to the earth which he had
formed. From the sinnll end of hHI
staff he fashioned the fishes big ones
and little ones, of various sizes and
various shapes. And when he formed
them he breathed upon them tho
breath of life and placed them In tho
streams; and when they were put !
the water they swam away, and so
vvera the fishes created.
Then the Mnnltou went .o the for
ests, and here he picked f.om tho
ground great handfiils of dry leave?
which had been cast there by lh
wind. These he blew Into the air and
there they floated and llew, and wings
and feathers came to them and from
that time on the birds were made to
live upon the earth. And from tho
leaves of the oak were the larger
birds the eagles, and the ravens, and
the hawks created , and from tho
nspen leaves came the red bird ami
tho jay. And each leaf made Its own
bird, anil each tree Its own kind, ami
the woods were filled wPh the musle
of the birds when they sang.
From the middle of his slnlT tho
Mnnltou created the bens(stho ante
lope and the bison, the rabbits ami
the squirrels, the co.vote and the wolf,
and tlie sheep and the fox nnd thesis
he set down upon the earth also, ami
some went to the plains and sonu to
the mountains, and some lived In tho
forests and nunc among the rocks, and
and so were the beasts created.
Hut when the .Mnnltou had made nlf
these and had paused to rest from his
Inbors, they straightway fell to fight
ing and the big killed the little, ant!
the strong attacked the weak, and
the rivers and woods were rod witU
the blood of the beasts which thu
Mnnltou had mnde. And the Mnnltou,
when he saw the battle anil saw thn
crentures Killing and being killed,
wns sick at heart.
So he decided to create some othel
living creature, Imbued with his own
strength and his own wisdom; ami
this creature he decided would he set
down upon the earth to rule tho oth
ers and to make the laws and tlia
rules, and fo see that the beasts censed
their killing and lived In peace and
Iffirmony together as he desired.
So from the big end of his staff ho
fashioned the grlz.ly, and him he set
down at the foot of the great moun
tain, and gave to him strength am)
wisdom to govern the world. And
the grizzly was master of all the oth
ers, and Interpreted to them the words
and the dctircs of the Mnnltou.
When the Mnnltou had cicated the
grk'zly then he returned ngaln to his
home In heaven and left the beasts
behind to inhabit the world which he
So was the creation or the beasts
nnd the birds an 1 the fishes and all
livings tilings except the red men,
who came later and who were born
through the nnget of the Mnnltou
with the grizzly and his tribe. Hut
that Is another story of another titno
which Is told by the wise men of tho
tribe, and which shall be told 1 tor.
Note The material of this legend
nlso comes rom tho Ute or Mohochl
tribe, and Is clearly connected with
tho legend of the creation of tho
world. It wns obtained by tho writer
from Huckskln Charley, last of tho
great Ute chiefs and ward of tho
