Aleut - Princess Raven
Princess Raven The Chief did not like Raven because he could transform himself into various things. He thought about turning himself into a human, but Raven wanted the Chief to be able to notice his presence when he saw the princess. "I will fly into the air above the river & turn myself into a hemlock needle. When it floats down to you. pick it up & swallow it." Princess nodded & wondered what was going to happen as Raven flew into the air. In an instant he was gone. a small hemlock needle slowly fell towards the water. When it floated down to her, princess picked it up & swallowed it. She waited, but nothing happened. Then she felt a jerk in her back. The princess reached back to see what the pain was & to her surprise, she felt feathers, A wing grew out of her back & wrapped around her. It was so warm. The princess felt a love like never before. Raven & the princess felt a Love like never before. Raven & the princess were joined together throughout all time. All creatures that saw them could feel the love drifting from the face of the princess & the wing of Raven........
