Chiiwish Awaashish is an orphan who is mistreated by others. He asks young girls who are cleaning fish to give him some. And when he is refused fish, he brings on strong winds so that people cannot check their nets. Chiiwish Awaashish also gets a girl at camp pregnant mysteriously. After the baby is born, it is discovered that Chiiwish Awaashish is the father.

George tells a story of his life in the past. His family experienced hunger. They had cached food for the winter but crows and foxes ate everything from the cache. His family camped with people from Whapmagoostui at Apishikimiish (Lac Bienville). As they move further east towards Mistisiipii (George River), they meet up with Montagnais people from Waashaau (Sept Isles?). The Montagnais family was starving. George mentioned that it was hard to communicate with them. George helped the Montagnais by giving them some fish to use as bait for their fish hooks.

Kaauchihkumishiu tests the powers of Piyaakwaakimiu by getting him angry. Kaauchihkumishiu trades a caribou skin for a fish net from Piyaakwaakimiu. After the trade, Kaauchihkumishiu returns the net saying that he heard rumours that Piyaakwaakimiu was not satisfied with the trade. Both men leave each other on a sour note. Kaauchihkumishiu paddles and notices a blade of sea grass stuck on his paddle. He tries to wash it off but it stays on his paddle. He picks off the sea grass with his fingers and continues paddling. Later that night, Kaauchihkumishiu`s arm becomes very sore. After healing his arm, he finds out that it was Piyaakwaakimiu that put a curse on the sea grass to make him sick. Kaauchihkumishiu returns the curse by killing Piyaakwaakimiu. The brother of Piyaakwaakimiu takes revenge on Kaauchihkumishiu.

This is one story of Kuikuhaachaau. Wolves reach Kuikuhaachaau. The leader of the wolves is named Chiihchiikwaayush. They begin living together. Kuikuhaachaau seems to be very pitiful compared to the wolves. The wolves seem to use shaman power in their hunt but Kuikuhaachaau is very unsuccessful. The wolves give him some of their power but Kuikuhaachaau uses it indiscriminantly. Another time when Kuikuhaachaau collects rock tripe, an arrow passes by him. The other person tries to help using special power but Kuikuhaachaau fails to follow the orders and the help fails. Then, Kuikuhaachaau reaches the man Kaa Umaanikinishiu. Kuikaahaachaau asks him for his caribou corral. Kaa Umaanikinishiu instructs Kuikuhaachaau how to use it but he fails to follow the instructions and isn`t able to kill any caribou.

The legend of Pikuch Iiyiyiu who lived with Pikuchiskwaau. Pikuch Iiyiyiu and his brother go hunting. But the brother never sees the game that Pikuch Iiyiyiu sees, such as the loon and caribou. Only after Pikuch Iiyiyiu kills the game, that`s when the brother sees the game. One time when the brothers go hunting, they kill many caribou and stay the night away from camp. That`s when Pikuch Iiyiyiu fears an attack from strangers. Pikuch Iiyiyiu also performs the shaking tent. George also explains the legend in detail at the end.
