Illustration for an Athabascan folktale from the Yukon River country.

People were going out on the lake to hunt ducks and disappearing in a thick fog and were never seen again. Raven discovered that a Foggy Man was capturing them. Raven made a canoe from pitch and sand and then he fooled the Foggy Man into trading canoes and when the Foggy Man was way out in the middle of the lake Raven wished that Foggy Man would disappear and that was the end of the Foggy Man.
