"The story I was told, of a very large Kakawin (killer whale), kinda of beached itself in an area where a high volume of salmon migrated through. And would not stop eating the salmon, which upset the balance of nature. The people were unable to stop Kakawin's habits, and the people and all other animals who depended on the salmon began to starve. People in then turned to Thunderbird for help with the actions of kakawin.  At first Thunderbird was unable to pick the great kakawin up and out of the ocean. And at the end, Thunderbird used his lighting snakes to stunn kakawin before lifting him out of the ocean and into Thunderbirds huge nest between the mountains. Kakawin then learned his lesson of never to upset the natural evolution of nature."
