The legend of Akaa Kaa Nipihtaat, the young man that never killed any game. The women made fun of him. He lived with his parents and never killed any game even when he hunted. One time as he hunted, he became very frustrated. As he sat there, the animals began to notice him. All the animals approached him and explained that they didn`t know he existed. The animals tell the young man that he would be able to kill game now. After that, he became a successful hunter and all the women were attracted to him.
