A legend of a successful hunter who never shared food with others, even those who were starving. A starving family, a man, wife, daughter and son reach the stingy man. The stingy sees the young woman and desires to live with her. The family builds their lodge beside the stingy man. The stingy man invites the family and gives them food to eat. The young woman is arranged to live with the man. The stingy man refers to his young brother-in-law as as Shiichikunaapaau. The family hunts caribou successfully after that by using caribou snares.
