"High at the top of the world, there was a great long house where Thunderbird lived with his daughter. Inside his house was a chest, and inside the chest was a great treasure that Thunderbird kept under lock and key.
One day when Thunderbird's daughter was taking a walk in the forest, Raven followed her, and when she became thirsty, he changed himself into a pine needle and floated down the stream where she unknowingly cupped him in her hands and swallowed him with the water. Several months later, she gave birth to a son, who was Raven in human form.
Now, the son was the apple of his grandfather's eye and Thunderbird wanted nothing more than to see his grandson grow happy and strong, and gave the boy nearly everything he wanted. One day, Raven was playing quietly with his toys when his grandfather unlocked and opened the treasure chest. Inside, Raven could see two shining disks, one gold, the other, silver.
Thunderbird, seeing the look of delight on his grandson's face, showed Raven the disks and a small cloth bag full of twinkling silver medallions. He told Raven these were the Sun, Moon and Stars and that they were his greatest treasure. Then he closed and locked the chest again.
Raven thought quickly, and started crying, reaching his chubby hands towards the chest. At first Thunderbird refused to open it, but when Raven continued to cry inconsolably, he gave in. Taking out the bag, he let Raven play with the Stars, but told him that he would be very angry and would never let him play with his treasure again if he lost them.
Raven quickly promised that he would be very careful, and Thunderbird gave him the bag. For weeks, Raven played with the Stars, under the watchful eye of his grandfather, always careful to return them to the bag and lock them up before he went to sleep. Thunderbird grew complacent as he saw that Raven was so careful with his treasures, and decided he didn't need to lock them up, content that Raven would look after them.
One night when everyone was asleep, Raven stretched to his full height on his tip toes and changed back into a bird. Grabbing the bag of Stars, he flew out the smoke hole, spiraling higher and higher into the sky. When he reached the top of the sky, he opened his beak and shook the bag, scattering the Stars across the heavens. The People looked up and saw the light, and were afraid, but when they saw the light did not fall, they grew braver, and Raven was pleased."
