"There! It looks like a fawn's face!" And then...
After awhile they called it something different.
Some said, "As for us, we will live here."
Then further downriver, finally (they came to) ta'k'imiLding.
He (the Creator) made the dances for them.
At one time they were all one people/tribe.
For that reason, a long time ago it wasn't done for Redwood Creek people to dance.
And that's how people started living in Hoopa.
Even today, we're supposed to live on this land that was made ours (given to us).
Nobody knows how we came to Hoopa (anymore).
at that time, I was born

two years passed, in the place where my mother lived, and then my poor old grandmother, my poor old uncle, the three of them [including my mother] were living there, and then
there as for me at that point [it was like] I woke up from a sleep [became conscious, as a young child]
"the old woman's welfare check (they distribute it to her)," my grandmother, "for that reason, she can't stay." and then,
for that reason she went off looking for work, and then way over there ...

... she worked. as for me, I stayed at home, my grandmother raised me, and then her friends, a lot of elderly people used to be alive at that time.
and then, with them all they (used to) come over, they (used to) have conversation
and then, when I got a little bigger, they said [the old people]
"she knows a lot of things, that one"
and then after that, they would tell me about everything, and then the next day another one (elder) would come back again
and then, a variety of things she tells me about. and then things like laws ...
... everything I learned, from that
and then they took me and filled out papers, and then I was afraid of ...
... the people that are teaching, who only speak English. and then,
and then they told me, "you'll get on the bus (every day), and then you'll go off"
and then I always leave (for school) and then something ...
they (teachers) ask me questions, and I never say nothing. I always think I might say the wrong thing
I was getting high grades, some things I really learned well, like reading
and then "maybe I won't be able to say what I mean"
they always tell me, and then
and then my poor old grandmother always says
"that's why her belly has gotten (that way)"
and then they ask me, they say,
and then, I said "no, as for me ...
and then again someone asks me. they say to me, ...
and then I just can't figure out why they're asking me this question
so then I said no, nobody bothered me
and that's the way it happened, and after a short time went by
and then my poor old grandmother came in and said,
and then "no" I said, suddenly I feel sick all over
and then she went out
she told my mother. after a while she [mother] came in and she said, "what's wrong?"
I said "I feel really sick all of a sudden" and then
"the doctor said they're going to cut her open, and then you always say 'no'"
and then my grandmother always said "no"
and then, my poor old mother, she always gets angry
"me, I will pay for it all"
and then I got sick, and so
in the living room, and then,
I was so sick all over, I kept vomiting a little bit all the time
it got all over the floor

and then I lay down and they put something over my nose [ether mask]
and then I started counting
they came in, the person that takes care of you (the nurse), and she said
"how do you feel?" and then I told her,

"q'ut 'e:ng' do:ng' nino'k'int'a:ts' hay-de:di 'aht'ing mindaxe' 'aht'ing niwhong-xw 'a:niwehst'e'" haya:ł
The surgery already done! right now it's all finished, everything looks good
with it (the bandage) I couldn't move
there seemed to be something wrapped around my face
they said, "that is for in case you throw up"
and then "in it you will throw up," and then
they took it away over there
and then they never give me anything to eat
five days passed that way, it was in my arm
"now you get to eat!" some kind of juice they had on a tray, and then something else ...
... (something) thickened, "jello" it's called, and then
then they brought tea for me also
"this here, you drink it"
I did drink it, and then
I ate what they brought in for me (the jello), and then I still felt hungry
so that's what I did, and then after a while they came in
that hurt bad
it seemed like I was really strong, (while) I was lying there
and so they pulled me (up) to sit up on the bed, and suddenly, ow!
and then they told me
"you turn around at the end of the bed, you return back to where you started"
and then, really ...
it doesn't appear to be a hard thing to do. And then they started helping me along
okay then, so I went home
and so the doctor said "don't let her walk around"
my grandmother she was old
... she used to go out, she used to go over there
sometimes every now and then my mother would come in and tell me
"you just keep lying here!", she'd pull (the blankets) back up for me
then she leaves and then again I get up
"... you're going to go back to the doctor."
and then I could only drink milk,
and boiled eggs
three times a day I eat the same thing and then I felt, it seemed like I was becoming weak.
in the mean time
so they took me back, and then there he said
"she will become strong again" and then,
"because then suddenly ...

"there's drinking going on, so I don't want you to stay in here" she said
she said "you stay hidden in the car"
she took me back outside, in the car, and then in the back (of the car)
"you stay right here, when we come out, we're going to leave"
I sat down there in the seat. After a while, I started to get sleepy, I drifted into sleep off and on, I'm about to go to sleep, it seemed like

"your grandmother," he said, "I will kill her. your uncle too, I'm going to beat him up"
and then I was afraid of him, so I never said anything
as for them, they also seemed kind of drunk
my poor old grandmother, and my poor old uncle, I loved them very much
and then, for that reason, I didn't mention anything (about what happened)
and then he said
... she did that"
for that reason, I never said nothing, after a while, I finally became his wife
and I became pregnant four times
he threw me down over it, and I had a miscarriage
and then the doctor he was there
he was a big guy, and he took me in there (to the emergency room)
it seemed like more than six months (in the womb), that baby ...
... that (baby) he killed. And then after that, again, I had a girl [Debbie]

and then there wasn't anything walking about, nothing made a sound. There was a lot of variety of trees and greenery. "It looks really good," (the creator) thought.
and then he thought "I wish there was something ...
... running around, like deer, I wish bear was running around"
so then he created the animals

"and then you're going to do for me what I tell you."
and so "okay" he said
and then where a big mountain was standing there, he [the creator] poked a hole with his finger
and then (the creator) told his helper, "right here there's going to be all kinds of animals coming out."
"and (when they come out), you're going to name them"
and then "okay" he said
and he put them down there ...
where the hole comes out, and then he said, "come on out!"
and so then he (the bear) walked off into the bushes
after a while a deer came out, and then he also cut his umbilical cord
and then all the animals kept coming out, like the squirrel
and then he cut off all of their umbilical cords
he kept on telling them, "this is what your name will be" then "your name will be tse:-q'i-ya:ng'ay (squirrel)"
then, "you will be named na:q'itah-k'iLaxun (jack rabbit)"
and then that way that's what their name became, then they went off (into the woods)
they became wild animals
and then at the very tail end, he said "come on out here!"
then it peeked out
and then again he told him, "come on out here!"
he squeezed his face so it became sharp, he did it so bad that his eyes disappeared
he twisted his poor old arms until his hands were way up high (near his shoulders)
and then after that they went around all these animals, and then coyote
him and his grandma lived there, and then
all of them they all spoke to one another

there were a lot of them going around, so that's why they all became fairy tales. and then some of them had stories told about them
and then that one
"ya:xiniy ya:xinupse:, ya:xiniy, ya:sinupse" they always say, they always sing
and so then, the creator's helper told them what to do (how to work in order to live)
and so then they lived together that way, and then he watched after everything, he became the boss
and then in the middle of time, there were a lot of stories taking place

there were many stories told about them (the animals) But then there's a lot of animals, like grizzly bear, that have stories about them. There were a lot of them.
... stories about him, all the things that they say he did
"I have no wife" and then
all those wild animals running around, they have young ones
they have a mate. then as for him, he couldn't find a woman; there's none going around.
and then in vain he's going around everywhere
and then after a while he said "as for right now, all ...
and then they said, "you've got to make room for the people are going to be around here"
and then after a while
they said, "now the time has come, you're all going to acquire a tail" and then,
and then he said, "you will go in here", and then
"and then when morning comes, in the morning you will all wake up"
"and then you will pick up your tails"
"you'll all run off (into the woods) somewhere" and then,
and so then early in the morning they started waking up consecutively. [the night before,] Coyote thought, he looked over (all the tails)
and then he went to bed with his sticks poking up under his eyelids
in the middle of the night, I guess he was sound asleep, and the sticks poked through his eyes--his eyelids.

and then he picked it up, it became his tail, and for that reason, his tail isn't very pretty
and then he also became a wild animal, and after that, (the humans) were coming along ...
and that's the reason they are here, they (the animals) were here in from the time before
that's the old creator's helper, him also, he turned bad
then all the people that have died ...
... they're all going to wake up, when he returns, we are waiting for him
that's the end of this story
A long time ago we were living in Hoopa, and then after awhile...
He goes to Willow Creek sometimes, then sometimes...
...he rides to the store on it, and then he always tells me, "You'll like it a lot."
I always say, "No!" After awhile he told me, "Hey, let's go down by the river."
"OK then," I thought, then I sat down in back.
Then it started moving.
It went out of the driveway onto the main road, then ...
It went down toward the river, and then it ran around on the sand with us (on it).
Then sometimes he makes it go faster, [and] it spins out in the sand.
Then we got back up [and] we laughed.
Then in spite of that it was OK.
Then I got back on.
Then, I didn't like that, "Take me home quickly," I said, "back to the house."
And then we went home.
It came back up (to the house).
Then I came back out, and he said, "Come on over here and get up (on the motorcycle)."
And then, "It's not hard (to run this thing), you sit up here," and then ...
"Then sometime maybe you'll learn it."
Then I first thought, "Ah, I'm scared of it!"
"Don't be afraid of it," he said, "you sit up here."
Then, there was a stand (to put the bike on).
Then I sat back up there, then he said ...
"Shift it into first," then I shifted there.
Then [he said] "Step on it," and I just kind of stepped on it a little bit.
[He said] "Shift it into another gear," and I put it in second gear.

and then, after that, [he said] "If you're going to go faster, put it into third gear," and then I did that.
"Right here is the brake," he told me - he told all this to me.
Then he said, "OK, put it in first gear again."
He pushed it [while] I was sitting on it, and then it started running.

There was nothing out there, the land was good (clear, no objects in the way) at that time, it was running along, beside me he was running along, then he said...

"Shift it into second!" (he said). Then, I shifted it into second, it started running faster, (and) he was running beside me yet.
"Turn around," [he said], then I turned it around, and he was running beside me still.
I took it back to the house, and then...
And then he said, "OK, now you learned it."
And then, I started driving it around to where my mother used to live.
Then as for her, she was so proud of me, because I'm riding a motorcycle.
And then, after that, OK, I go around all over the place, here and there.

I drive around down by the river, and some other people lived out there by the gate, and then...
...a young lady comes out, then she says, I'm going to sit up there behind you, okay?
[Then I say], "OK," then she climbs on behind me, and then...
...it drives around, we would go drive around down by the river sometimes, and then she always liked that, then...

...she's too big, it's like she leans over in the wrong way around the back [of the motorcycle], then it seems like it's going to fall over, and then I don't like to take her with me very much.
Then my relative (now deceased) would always come, and then she found out about it after a while.
And then, as for her, she used to know how to ride a motorcycle.
She always watches which way [the motorcycle] is going to go, and then on that side...
... on that side she sort of shifts her body in that direction. As for her, [the motorcycle] runs around in a good way with us.
After awhile my husband also sits on the back (of the motorcycle).
And we sit there for a short period of time, then after awhile we go back to our house, [and] sometimes ...

... a big truck, when it passes us, that's bad, it feels like [the motorcycle] is going to start flying.

Sometimes we pass it, if I'm driving, he'd be sitting in the back, and then ...
... I guess because of the wind. Then we always return back after awhile to the house ...
... and then it's like we play around in that good way, we just go around.
