    Dolphins are known to be intelligent and friendly creatures. In this scenario, when Won-a-pa-lei's canoe started to leak and she had to turn back, dolphins could have guided her home by swimming alongside her canoe and leading her back safely. Dolphins are also known to be helpful in rescuing people in distress at sea, further emphasizing their role as good omen animals in this situation.

    Won-a-pa-lei got a canoe off of a high cliff without ruining it by using_________

    • A.

      Her strength

      Sinew

    • D.

      A wild dog

    Correct Answer
    B. Bull kelp
    Explanation
    Bull kelp is a type of seaweed that has long, flexible strands. It is buoyant and can be used as a natural rope or cordage. In this situation, Won-a-pa-lei used bull kelp to lower the canoe down from the high cliff without damaging it. By attaching the bull kelp to the canoe and carefully lowering it, she was able to safely transport the canoe to the ground.

    The natives decided they would leave if the Aleuts returned.  They would go to___________

    • A.

      Russia

    • B.

      Europe

    • C.

      Santa Catalina

    • D.

      Santa Barbara

    Correct Answer
    C. Santa Catalina
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Santa Catalina because the natives made a decision to leave if the Aleuts returned. Santa Catalina, an island off the coast of California, would be a logical destination for them to go to as it would provide them with a safe distance from the Aleuts. Russia and Europe are unlikely options as they are far away and would require long and difficult journeys. Santa Barbara is also unlikely as it is still relatively close to the Aleuts.

    • A.

      In the deep water

    • B.

      Over the cliff

    • C.

      At the wild dogs

    • D.

      In the bed of kelp

    Correct Answer
    A. In the deep water
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "in the deep water" because throwing beads and necklaces in the deep water implies that Won-a-pa-lei is discarding or getting rid of them. This action suggests that the beads and necklaces are unwanted or no longer needed, and throwing them in the deep water ensures that they are permanently removed from Won-a-pa-lei's possession.

    The laws of Ghalas-at forbade women____________

    • A.

      To make weapons

    • B.

      To hunt otter

    • C.

      To talk to strangers

    • D.

      To sleep during the day

    Correct Answer
    A. To make weapons
    Explanation
    In Ghalas-at, women were not allowed to make weapons. This suggests that there were strict societal norms or cultural beliefs that prohibited women from engaging in activities related to warfare or combat. This could be due to traditional gender roles or the belief that weapon-making was a male-dominated skill. By forbidding women from making weapons, the laws of Ghalas-at likely aimed to uphold and reinforce gender-specific roles and responsibilities within the society.

      Set fire to all the huts

    Correct Answer
    D. Set fire to all the huts
    Explanation
    Won-a-pa-lei set fire to all the huts because she did not want to live in the village alone. By burning down the huts, she ensured that there would be no place for her to return to, forcing her to move on and find a new home elsewhere. This action symbolizes her determination to leave the past behind and start anew, even if it means destroying what was once familiar to her.
