Illustration for an Athabascan folk tale. The Sun and Moon had a sister. The three of them set out to find the girl a husband. They traveled all around the edges of the sky and under the sea without finding a suitable husband. The girl laid down and died with a smile on her face. And the Sun and the Moon took their appointed places in the sky.
