The girl was the daughter of a great warrior and the boy was the son of another great warrior. Even though the boy's father was a great warrior, the boy's father died in a war party. The girl and the boy lived in different camps and never look at each other until their camps cross paths. During that time it was the girl's task to get clean water from the river for cooking and cleaning for her family.
    The girl went down to the river to get clean water for her family, when she met the boy. The boy was getting a drink of water, when he saw the girl. They both fell in love. Every morning when the girl was getting water, the boy would be there to help her carrier the water to her camp. One day the boy didn't came to the river to greet the girl, but went into her camp with a presents and towards her Tipi to ask the girl's father in her hand of marriage. The girl's father told the boy that he couldn't marry his daughter because he never went on a war party.
    The boy felt the sting rejection went to his mother and ask her to prepare him for a war party. The mother did what the boy asked her to do. When already for the war party, he asked one of his relatives to take him to an enemy's camp. A few days later word travel in the girl's camp that the boy suffer that same fate as his father. The girl heard the word and became depress and travel to a very high cliff.
