A long time ago, before the whiteman came and when the people were all full Cherokees, they had power, because they weren't all mixed with whites like they are now. One time there was a sickness around and a lot of people were dying. They didn't know what to do. But they looked around and they could see beautiful mountains everywhere and beautiful birds flying, and in the water there were beautiful fish that were good to eat, but if you took them out of the water they could die. The people thought there must be something wrong, because they were dying and yet there were good things everywhere.
