The Legend of Sleeping Lady

Many, many years ago along the shores of Cook Inlet there lived a race of giant, peaceful people.  The land was warm then.  Two of the giant people, the beautiful young maiden Susitna and her sweetheart Nekatla, were soon to be married.
 
One day a stranger came and warned that dangerous warriors from the north were coming.  Nekatla proposed that the men of the village should go north to meet the strangers and make peace with them.  Susitna promised to wait for him at the very spot they said goodbye.  After waiting several days she laid down to sleep.

While she was sleeping, the villagers received the terrible news that Nekatla had been killed.  The people decided not to wake her with the news, so they covered her with a blanket of soft grasses and wildflowers.

That night the warmth went away and the first snow happened.   New animals began to come, and the giant people were replaced by smaller humans.  Only one of the giant people remains -- Susitna, still sleeping peacefully and waiting for Nekatla.
