"These legends (with two or three exceptions) were told to me personally by my honoured friend, the late Chief Joe Capilano, of Vancouver, whom I had the privilege of first meeting in London in 1906, when he visited England and was received at Buckingham Palace by their Majesties King Edward VII and Queen Alexandra. These legends he told me from time to time, just as the mood possessed him, and he frequently remarked that they had never been revealed to any other English-speaking person save myself" E. Pauline Johnson foreword.
One of the best-known books of Canadian Mohawk author E. Pauline Johnson, who was no doubt the best-known female North American Indian writer of the first half of the 20th century.
