Excerpt

ill destroy us?

{Red Cloud}
Then is the Sun Man the stronger; it may be
because of his kindness and wiseness, and because
of his women.

{Young Brave}
Is it told that the women of the Sun are good
to the eye, soft to the arm, and a fire in the heart
of man?

{Shaman}
_(Holding up hand solemnly.)_
It were well, lest the young do not forget, to
repeat the old word again.

{War Chief}
_(Nodding confirmation.)_
Here, where the tale is told.

_(Pointing to the spring.)_
Here, where the water burst from under the heel
of the Sun Man mounting into the sky.

_(War Chief leads the way up the hillside
to the spring, and signals to the Old Man
to begin)_
