Many animals have a spirit associated with them. For example, Chulyen[?] (crow) and Guguyni[?] (raven) are trickster gods.
Two brothers, Tihtipihin[?] and Kwatyat[?] were willingly swallowed by a monster because they needed to rescue their mother, who had already been swallowed. The brothers then cut through the stomach and, with their mother, escaped.
Andakout[?] was born from the mucus or tears of a woman whose children had been stolen by Malahas[?] (a malicious forest goddess). He rescued the children and killed Malahas.
