The stories told around the campfire taught us of legends—tales of demons and heroes.I thought they were only stories.Little did I know how true they really were.They were warnings.I’m getting ahead of myself, so maybe I should back up. My name is Pamoon and until recently I lived a pretty normal life. Well, as normal as it could be growing up on a Cree reservation. You see, my real mom left me on steps of the reservation medical center when I was just an infant. Being Cree is all I’ve ever known, and all I wanted to be.Our reservation borders the Florida Everglades, and the woods that divide the Res from the swamp are said to be sacred. They are also the woods my friends like to camp in to drink and let off steam at a campfire they built. My life changed the night my friends disappeared. They vanished one night while they were reciting a ritual they didn’t understand. They didn’t believe the it to be real—they were just having a little fun with one of the legends I spoke about.That’s when I found out the truth of who I was, of who I was supposed to grow to be. I know I’m not making a lot of sense, but who could blame me. I just found out that I am the subject of one of the stories the elders told; the story of a sixteen-year-old girl, whose skin is as white as winter’s snow, come to send demons back to the Netherworld. The girl, who if the story is right, was born to save all the First Peoples. That’s when I found out I was more than a mere girl, but a goddess.If my friends have any chance of being found, it’s up to me . . . me and Scout, my wolf cub, to find them and bring them home.But I’m going to need help, help only the spirits can provide. I don’t know if I’m up to the task, but what choice do I have?. Instead of listening to me babble on, come and hear the entire story, the story of the Kiche—the Sky Spirit Goddess. My story.Whatever evil man creates, only man can defeat
