"GENDENWITHA"...THE IROQUOIS CALLED THE "MORNING STAR" BY THIS NAME, WHICH TRANSLATES AS "SHE WHO BRINGS THE DAY. HER STORY TELLS OF A TIME WHEN THE HUNTER, "SOSONDOWAH" (GREAT NIGHT) WAS STALKING A SUPERNATURAL ELK. HE PURSUED THE "SKY ELK" WHICH HAD SOMEHOW WANDERED DOWN TO EARTH FAR UP INTO THE HEAVENS. IT WAS THERE THAT HE FOUND HIMSELF TRAPPED BY GODDESS OF THE "DAWN "WHO SET HIM AS WATCHMAN BEFORE THE DOOR OF HER LODGE. BUT, HE DID NOT REMAIN FAITHFUL FOR WHEN HE LOOKED DOWN UPON THE EARTH, HE SAW "GENDENWITHA", A MORTAL MAIDEN, WHO LOVED TO DANCE BENEATH THE STARRY SKIES, AND HE FELL IN HER. HE WATCHED HER DANCE THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT, LONGING TO BE WITH HER.

SO, WHILE "DAWN "WAS BUSY COLORING THE SKY, THE HE DESCENDED TO HIS BELOVED IN THE "SPRING, "AND HE SANG TO HER A BLUEBIRD; IN THE SUMMER HE WOOED HER AS A BLACKBIRD. AND IN THE AUTUMN, IT WAS UNDER THE GUISE OF A GIANT NIGHTHAWK THAT HE BORE HER TO THE HEAVENS WITH HIM. BUT THE JEALOUS SPIRIT OF "DAWN "TURNED THE WOMAN INTO A STAR AND SET" GENDENWITHA J"UST ABOVE HER DOOR WHERE HE COULD WATCH HER ALL NIGHT, BUT NEVER BE WITH HER. AT DAWN, AS THE "MORNING STAR", SHE HERALDS THE NEW DAY.
