a long time ago here there is a camp , there were many of them , here where it is called , the west end , where the sun goes down .
kʷen̓t t suxʷnč̓el̓xʷtiʔn hu hec čšt̓steʔs łuʔ skʷkʷʔec sp̓q̓n̓iʔ
so then it was these people who were guarding the night moon .

here these other people , they were wishing for it this night moon ,
nteʔ qs naʔq̓ʷms m kʷen̓t qł čc̓q̓mnaʔsq̓tms
they thought they would steal it and would then throw it up into the sky .
n̓e qeʔł p̓eʔxʷmi , tm̓a hi č̓eyleʔxʷ;
so it will again become bright , you know it is a dark land ;
qs weʔkʷisti m qs naʔq̓ʷms
they're going to hide so they could steal

but then they aware of this , those who had the sun , they would give chase , chase these robbers and will kill them .

These two antelope who thought they should be the robbers , becasue they are so fast , no one would be able to catch them. So... that is how they decided everyone around could not over take them , they were so fast !

So when the antelopes arrived home...and here on their teepee they did lean it against this here night moon and they went in , maybe they were going to eat , who knows what they were going to do...
ih , exʷ p̓n spilye sewne , hu
oh , boy , who but coyote hears this , and
šey s k̓ʷʔis xʷt̓ip··· w̓ičis hec čłaʔqi...n y̓e skʷkʷʔec sp̓q̓n̓i hu kʷen̓t
that's when he went running . . . he saw it it is le...aning this night moon and then

he took it , proceeded to run away with it

they heard him did these antelope , so then they began to chase coyote , who is headed toward the river .

coyote gave a mighty heave and pushed forward

this night moon [ you know he is rolling it - -]

and then fast it rolled and fell with a splash

here into the river , at that time it is called the narrow little river.

so then yet it is there even unto this day.

that is all.
