This is the legend of Kuikuhaachaau and Waaniyuuyaau. Kuikuhaachaau warns his siblings that Waaniyuuyaau was near and not to cross his path. But Sikusaapaau accidentally touches Waaniyuuyaau`s path. Waaniyuuyaau goes after Kuikuhaachaau and his family. Waaniyuuyaau transforms into a giant skunk to kill his victims. Kuikuhaachaau transforms into the wolverine and attacks Waaniyuuyaau. Kuikuhaachaau and his family kill Waaniyuuyaau but Kuikuhaachaau gets some of awful stench on his face. His head is wrapped and he goes towards the sea to wash himself. After washing himself in the sea, Kuikuhaachaau finds some family members living with Minituu. Minituu is very selfish and doesn`t share. Minituu and Kuikuhaachaau don`t get along and Minituu tries to kill Kuikuhaachaau unsuccessfully. The legend is abruptly cut due to the length of the tape.

A man was very cruel. His son-in-law is determined to get back at him. The father-in-law and son-in-law watch a game of ball. As the game goes on, the father-in-law`s team does not score. He gets angry and tries to hurt the young man`s brothers. But the young man protects his brothers with his power. As the camp separates to hunt in different areas for the winter, the father-in-law tries to put a curse on the young man but the young man returns it. As the winter progresses, the bad father-in-law`s camp becomes hungry and starts cannibalizing on the other camp members. In the spring, the young man and his brothers hear the cannibal coming for them. As the young men paddle, the cannibal swims after them but they kill him in the water by spearing him.

Five tales of Chihkaapaash. First is his encounter with the giant fish and being swallowed whole by the fish. Second is encountering the Spirit people and the incident with the giant beaver. Third is the encounter with the giant being that killed the parents of Chihkaapaash and his sister. Fourth is the getting married to two sisters after killing their cannibal mother. And the fifth one is about their move into the land of the sky and snaring the sun.
