                  PABSONS] FOLK TALES 361

                  witches, we believe; from getting sick, people will remember iema'paru
                  and W~ide.

                  They were already up in this world when they fell sick and had
                  to ask iema'paru for power to cure the sick. They were living on
                  some mountain (name forgotten). They could not find the way to
                  begin it (the curing cercmony). They had a meeting to find out
                  how to ask for the power. There were kumpa and kabewidde,
                  wilaweri (the war chief), the White Corn Mother, and all the other
                  Corn Mothers (chiefs of the Com groups)

                  They were thinking it over, thinking it over. At last a boy came
                  in. He had no father or mother or relations. The other boys did
                  not like him. One of them who had been playing with him, thinking
                  he would harm him, went to the wilaweri and said that this boy
                  could tell them what they needed. So wilaweri told the fathers there
                  was a boy who could tell them what they needed. They told wilaweri
                  to caU him in. So wilaweri called him in and gave him a seat and
                  asked him if he knew how to ask iema'paru for her power. lema/paru
                  was helping him. "Yes," he said. "To make this power you need
                  the head one of the world; you need t'aikabede (people chief, i. e.,
                  town chief)." They did not lmow who t'aikabede was. One man
                  said that he, the boy, might himself be the t'aikabede. He said,
                  "For you to ask me properly and have me tell you, you must give
                  me a smoke (pa]d/om)." So kumpa rolled a cigarette and offered
                  it to him. He did not take it. He said, "This is not the right one
                  (kind). You need tepab'paki~mu~epa, native tobacco)." They had
                  to ask him what ~epab'paki~mu was. (This boy was bom by the
                  power of iema~paru.) He said to thé people, "If you have faith that
                  I am thé one to get you out of this trouble, keep your mind on your
                  ceremony, on one road. I will get you this îepab'paki~mu." 51 A
                  young girl was sitting there. He went up to her and said to her not
                  to mind what he did, and he kissed her. That was the first keide
                  (Mother). That is the way the keide came out. Now he was holding
                  a big piece of the lepab'paki'mu which he had got with his power
                  when he kissed that girl. He knew she was powerful like himself.
                  He gave the lepab~pakfmu to kumpa, who rolled a cigarette and gave
                  it to him, and he smoked. Before he finished smoking, clouds were
                  ail around. Lightning and thunder began to come and rain fell.
                  Then he had to say that he would be their headman (t'aikabede),
                  and the girl would be their keide. That is how they leamed to make
                  their ceremony. When they were under ground maybe they were
                  asleep or did not pay attention. That is why they did not bring
                  these ceremonies up with them. So they started their ceremonies as
                  they do them now.
