Spirit Helper Oregos
By Paah Wenchokws
Spirit Oregos liked people so she
decided to be a huge rock at the mouth of the Klamath River.
Her job each year was to tell the
fish when they should leave the ocean and head upriver. And
so, each year, Oregos guides the smelt and candlefish, upriver
where the Yurok people net them.
They are so oil-rich that they can
be burnt as a candle for light.
Then in the spring she sends up the
cut-throat trout, in May the giant sturgeon, and in July she
calls in [napooie] Salmon, the delicious king salmon.
August is the steelhead run, followed
by silver salmon.
Oregos, what a spiritual helper.
