Description:

Story of the Eagle Boy: During the cool summer evenings, the chief's nephew would go down the narrow piece of land, jetting out into the ocean, to feed eagles. The other villagers called him lazy when he went off to gaze at the skies rather than help dry salmon for the approaching winter. Only his grandmother believed in her heart that he would prove himself one day. When the village became short of food, the uncle decided to move everyone, except his nephew, to the Euchlegan Rivers further north. The nephew, now lonely and without food, watched as an eagle flew out to the spit. As he watched, the eagle released his tight hold on a salmon. He stumbled on rocks as he quickened his pace to get to the food. The nephew burst with joy when more eagles came with offerings for him. Meanwhile, the uncle did not fare well. There were no Euchlegan in the rivers. As they returned to the nephew they all noticed his strength from being well fed. He offered food to them. In return they gladly offered their wealth to him. He became a much respected man in the village which filled his grandmother with much happiness.
