Dzunuk'wa' & Sisiutl Canoe '97 "A young man decided that he needed help in his quest to become a great warrior. He knew that Dzunuk'wa' could help as she had fabulous wealth in her supernatural treasure box. Dzunuk'wa' might be vain, stupid, and clumsy, but she was also very spontaneous in her gift giving.
The young warrior knew that her baby ogress never cried, much to the chagrin of the giantess. He though that she might present him with a gift if he could make her child cry. So he proceeded to taunt the baby, pinching and teasing her. Finally with great excitement he heard the baby ogress cry out. The giantess was so overwhelmed she presented him with a gift - a supernatural canoe.
Not only did this canoe carry him in his journeys across the seas and rivers, but it was a supernatural canoe that could transform into whatever he wished. He though that sisiutl would be his perfect ally. The double-headed serpent was a dreaded force to be dealt with - his glance could turn an enemy into stone, its flesh was impervisous to any spear. His scales, spines, blood and eyes were formidable weapons.
So this is how the young man earned his Great Warrior status.". -- Calvin Hunt (Artist)
