"The story of the Crow story is a long story. And no end to that. I think you can’t finish [in] six months or something if you really know all the story. That’s how the world, that’s how the world, yeah, that’s how this world [is] set up. And when he fly from that place there he fly over to Fish Lake, Marsh Lake, down that way, all the way to Frances Lake. He fly all over [the] place, all this world. He put the fish in there, drop it, drop it, drop it, drop, that’s why all the fresh water fish. Yeah. He got that fish from Eagle. That’s why we got all kids of fish."
