Innagural Winter Short Story Festival 19:21

This story of a cold time was found in my Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library-American Indian Myths and Legends.  It tells of a time when the planet was cold and all of the animals were about to freeze to death.   The story shows how the wolf, the fox, the wolverine, the bobcat, the mouse, the pike, and the dogfish steal fire and warm up the world.   -  Enjoy the story Keeping Warmth in a Bag.

Interesting Facts

  1. The story is from the Slavey Native Americans who lived in British Columbia.  
  2. The Slavey are related culturally and linguistically (of relating to the language used by a group) to the Plains tribes in to the south.
  3. They made their living by hunting, fishing and trapping.
