The first two people came down from the land above to the land where the Cree now live. They did not heed the warnings that only one person may look down from the spider's line and when both looked, they fell into the great eagle-nest. They were rescued by a wolverine and a bear, the latter of whom taught the pair the ways of life on this new land. Much later, the White men came.

When Chahkabesh, a child orphaned by the great bears, grows up and find the tracks of his parents' killers, he ignores his sister's warnings to leave them be and instead fashions strong arrows and kills them all. He guts each bear but can't find his parents and so he returns to his home and tells his sister what happens. She admonishes him but he ignores her again. He then goes out to collect snow and she warns him not to look up at the moon or he'll be drawn up. He agrees but doesn't mean it. As he collects snow, he looks up and the moon draws him up. That is where he's been ever since.
