The Stars were formerly people. Some details regarding their singing. The opening of flowers from their buds compared with the former ways of the star. In the Katkop dialect, by Díä!kwãin (L.V.-21. 5660-5668, and 5661 rev.-5663, rev., note). Stars resemble the Moon and used to be people. The stars resemble the budding flowers on trees. The stars burn like little fires.
