Mayuk the Grizzly Bear: A Legend of the Sechelt People

$7.00 each


A grandfather relates a story about Mayuk, and about Indian medicine.



In the naming of his great-grandson, a grandfather relates the story of how Mayuk met his match at the hands of three brothers, and how one, who was wounded, was healed by Indian medicine. To celebrate his survival, the grandfather named his grandson Mayuk so he would have the attributes of that animal. That this book is a story within a story within a story within a story is a common Northwest Coast oral history device.
