"As told in the Bear Mother Myth, the beautiful young daughter of a Chief was out berry picking and neglected the traditional singing to warn the Bears of human presence. This lack of respect for the Bears caused her abduction by the Prince of the Bear People. Her high rank results in their marriage, but relentless pursuit by her brothers to find the lost Princess causes the Prince to flee with her. He hides her high in a tree on a mountain, where she gives birth to twin bear cubs. Ultimately, they are found and as Bear prepares for death he removes the cubs' bear garments and they are transformed into human beings, predestined, like the Bear, to become the greatest of hunters. In this depiction, the Bear is in constant vigil with the Human mother in his shoulder and two cubs below."
