An Athabascan folktale. People who went to the lake to hunt ducks disappeared and no one ever saw them again. Raven went to the lake to find out what was happening to the people and saw that it was Foggy Man who was stealing the hunters and taking them to the bottom of the lake. Raven tricked Foggy Man and shot him with an arrow. And that was the end of Foggy Man.
