Chr'r'y 'o te'l. 'O numi ki'm soo te'l.
Bear was sick. He was very badly sick.
Kich 'o gesi', Tu kegey ku negii'n.
So they said, We'll look for an Indian doctor.
Ku chegemem 'o kegey. Kwesi 'o ge'm, To' nek ki meskwok'.
The Hummingbird was an Indian doctor, and he said, I'll treat you.
- Chegemem 'o meskwo'm ku chr'ry. 'O he'm chegemem, Cho' hunkekso'm
Hummingbird treated the bear. Hummingbird said, Open your mouth!
Chr'r'y 'o 'rhkrhl', 'ohlkumi hi', Cho' 'rhkrhlr'm! Chr'ry 'o 'rhkrhl'.
Bear opened his mouth, because he was told, Open your mouth! Bear opened his
Noohl chegemem 'we-luulik 'o soot', noohl ku 'u-mrtrw hr pkwechok'w.
Then Hummingbird went into his mouth, and he came out through his butt.
Kich 'o kwesi ku chr'r'y pe 'u-kol soo nohlpeyk', mi mos nohlpe'y tu witi'
So the Bear goes to the bathroom something like that, because he couldn't go
to the bathroom and that's why he was sick.
Tu wit 'u-soo nohlpeyk'.
So he shits like that.
Tu wit tu we'yk'oh, mocho ki newo'm chr'ry kol 'em nohlpe'y, kolni 'o
pa'aami' mi ku chegemem 'u-meskwok'.
So today, if you see a bear went to the bathroom, it looks kind of wet
because the Hummingbird treated him.
- That's the end hirkik.
