CONCLUSION OF KANTEEMANS TALE

THEY WOMAN IN THE VILLAGE HEARD OF WHAT WAS GOING ON. THEY WISH NOT TO ENCOURAGE SUCH ROUGE BEHAVIOR PROPOSED BY THE WARBIRD. SIFFRON SAID TO THE OTHERS, THE FEATHERS OF THE HOFFTINDALE SHALL DANCE TO MAKE THE WARBIRD SING, HE SHALL THEN BE THE AMBASSADOR THAT I WISH HIM TO BE. SHE ORDERED HER MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMEN TO BE CLEANED AND HAVE SCENT, AND WEAR THE FEATHERS OF PEACE, AND SPEAK TO THE SETTLERS. WHILE THE MEN SLEPT, THE WOMAN DRESSED AND WENT INTO THE SETTLEMENT, ASKING TO SPEAK TO THOSE WHO COULD FIND THE GOD'S OF THE STREAM. THEY WISH THE MEN NOT TO KNOW OF THEIR INVOLVEMENT WITH WHAT WILL BE NEGOTIATED. THEY TOLD THEM THE GODS HAD COMMANDED THEM TO HUNT WITHIN THE FENCE, AND TO TAKE THE STONES FROM THE WALL. ONE SETTLER TOLD THE PRICE OF A STEER, AND SAID IF ONE WOULD BE MISSED THEY'D HAVE TO PAY FOR IT, AND IF THE STONES FROM THE CREEK WERE REMOVED, THE NATIVES WOULD HAVE TO FIX IT. THEY GAVE THE SETTLERS THE PRICE OF A PRIZE BULL AND MADE A PLAN TO HAVE THE SETTLERS MAKE A DEAL TO FIX THE STONES IN THE WALL, ALL WHICH HAD NOT HAPPENED. THE WOMEN WERE TO GATHER THOSE WHO WOULD FIX THE WALL BY NEGOTIATING BEFORE THE HAPSTANCE. WELL DAYS LATER THE IMAGE REAPPEARED AND ORDERED A HUNT AND THE STONES REMOVED FROM THE WALL, A GROUP OF SETTLERS WATCHED FROM THE SHRUBS AND SAW WHAT THEY NATIVES SAW AND WERE AMAZED, THEY THEN SPOKE TO THEIR CLERGYMEN WHO TOLD THEM TO ALLOW THE HAPSTANCE TO HAPPEN, AND TAKE THE MONEY AND TRY TO GET FOLK AWARE MIGHT THEY HAVE TO FIX THE WALL. DAYS LATER MUSKHAWK, PAINTED HIS FACE AND GRABBED A SPEAR AND WENT IT THE FENCE AND HUNTED A STEER, HE USED A HORSE TO REMOVE THE STEER. THIS WAS DOOONE AT THE EDGE OF NIGHT. WARBIRD COMMANDED THAT THREE STONES BE REMOVED FROM THE WALL, AND THE WATER GOD COULD DO THE REST HIMSELF IF HE WAS TRULY GOD. THE SETTLERS ALLOWED SUCH. AND WHEN THE DAMN HAD BROKE, THEY SPOKE NOTHING OF IT. FOR DAYS AND WEEKS AND THAN MONTHS AND YEARS WENT BY WITHOUT ANYONE SAYING A THING. UNTIL NOW!
