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.
