How the Chipmunk Got
By Bear Medicinewalker,
The Bear gave a low snarl at the
little Chipmunk "I have enough power that if I wanted to
I could order Father Sun to not rise in the morning". The
Chipmunk laughed and looked at the Bear, "Uh huh, sure
you could." "Wait Chipmunk you will see," growled
the Bear. The Chipmunk laughed, "I will wait, and we shall
watch together as Father Sun rises in the sky at the usual time".
So as Father Sun rose the next morning
in the sky the little Chipmunk laughed and made fun of the Bear,
"All powerful Bear," continuing to taunt until the
Bear became so mad that it reached out to grab the little Chipmunk.
But the Chipmunk managed to escape,
for his burrow was nearby. Yet just as he reached the opening
to his home, the Bear stretched out its massive paw to swipe
at him. Narrowly escaping from under it he managed to scurry
into the hole.
However, the very next day when
the Chipmunk came out of its burrow, it had three marks on his
back, marks of the Bear's claws. And Chipmunks carry those marks
to this day.
