Once upon a time, a fish was in a lack of water and was able to grant a woman from a Native tribe three wishes if she helped him. She did and the fish granted her the wishes. She wished for a large mine of coal that her tribe could burn for warmth. The next wish was for a large forest that surrounded the tribe, and that it was filled with game so the village could be plentiful. The final wish was a wish she gave to the fish himself. She wished for a large river he could live in. The fish did, and since the wishes were so unselfish, he put more and more fish in the river for the village.
