W’Kawin Pethakwanink – Beaver Speaks & Frog Sings

Beaver said to ring the trees,
Beaver said to cut the roots,
Beaver said the trees would fall,
Beaver said the soil would loosen.
He said this would happen behind the dam.

Frog begins to sing for rain,
Frog’s vision becomes clouds,
Frog’s voice turns to thunder,
Frog is happy when it rains.

They said to listen to them
and they would show how to break
a dam.

They showed this to me behind the dam.
Listen! For Beaver speaks and Frog sings.
