Blue Jay Brings Back the Moon
Blue Jay, Northwest Coast Salish tribes' trickster character, who through his antics brings us laughter, pranks, and yes, even powerful lessons. In this traditional story from the Snoqualmie people, the cunning Blue Jay ventures out to bring Snoqual the Moon -- the Transformer, who has been kidnapped by the Dog Salmon people and taken to the Sky world, back to Earth to help prepare for the humans to arrive.
