Here’s a a Coast Salish legend. From the Camosun College website: The Legend of Camossung.
After the flood, the transformer Haylas was travelling with Raven and Mink teaching the people how things were to be done.
They found a young girl, named Camossung and her grandfather. She was crying, so Haylas asked her why. She answered, "My Father is angry with me and will not give me anything to eat."
Haylas asked her if she liked sturgeon, and when she answered "no" he threw the sturgeon to the Fraser River. That is why there are sturgeons there and not here. He asked her if she liked cranberries and when she answered "no" he threw them into the Shawnigan Lake. That is why there are cranberries there now. [continue]
