The Lost Salmon
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     The Yakima tribe told the story of the Lost Salmon. They hoped the people would remember the story, tell it to their children, and pass it on over and over again so everyone would remember an important lesson.
 
2     The Creator gave the people salmon just for them. He told them to be careful and not take more than they needed. If they did this, they would always have salmon to eat.
 
3     At first, the people followed the rules. They were happy. Lots and lots of people lived in the villages on the river. They always had salmon to eat.
