One day, a school of large, white sea bass washes up on the beach near Ghalas-at. Ulape finds them and alerts the village women, who quickly drag the huge fish to the village for a feast. When the Aleuts learn of the tribe’s good fortune, they demand that Chief Chowig give them some of the fish. He refuses, on the grounds that the Aleuts are hunters and can collect their own meat.
