Torn in two

When Senklip (Coyote) Transformed the People Eaters

I saw Porcupine tear us from the earth.

Just as creator had intended, but then


Ripped us in half, called us brothers.

One White, one Red


He sent our white brother

Across the water. It was a test.


When our brother returned, he

Would have different ideas than us.

Speak different than us.

Live different than us

Based on part of sqilxw creation story
