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.
