English translation

He told his brother to gather small sticks, I am on my way to gather to bring him. So he left to look for awkward/funny shapes to take him after he carves it. So he hits him with the wood and says its too much of an awkward/ funny shape. Once you carve it and shape it and use it as a whistle and take it towhere he is at and starts to holler moose, coyotes, cows, horses,and birds. Everyone go there and not return. Finally a turtle crawling out of the dirt that covered him and they finally arrived home and someone says are you hunting and the evil woman was thinking of a way to kill him.
