Note: Kroeber quotes Amits: rattlesnake "is afraid of octopus"; this medicine "comes from 'woogey who had to leave their houses."
Kee cho' poy nue raayo'r.
(You) go run ahead.
- Kel' kee wohpewk 'o paamew.
You will be across the sea where the octopus is.
Noohl chee naagor', 'ne-tuelos.
Run far away, my aunt.
