He was the first to reach them.
He was the chief of the tribe.
Unlike the others, he was not afraid to speak to them.

They were black like midnight.
They were dreamy.
They were black like a lizard's eyes.
They were green as the Emerald Sea.
To search for hidden treasures.
To search for wild dogs to take back to native country.
To hunt for deer, turkey, and beavers that inhabit the island.
To hunt for sea otters.
The shape of the island is like a dolphin.
There are blue dolphins that live in the cove.

A school of white bass
A pod of dolphins
A herd of deer
A pack of wild dogs

They were afraid they would leave the island without cleaning up.
They were afraid they would leave without saying good-bye.

He wanted the Captain to give him one chest, instead of three.
He wanted the Captain to give him three chests, instead of one.

He kept the sea otter pelts until the Aleuts delivered the chest.
He had one Aleut stay back until the chest was delivered.
He drew straws with Captain Orlov to see who would echange first.
He let one person from his tribe choose a chest.
If it rained during his ceremony.
If he wore red during battle.
If he spoke his real name.
If he caught a sea otter while out fishing with the tribe.
They had to cook less food.
They had to start teaching the young children how to speak Russian.
They had to start doing more work to make up for the islanders killed in the battle.
They had to start hunting wild dogs.
They were sad from all of the memories.
They did not like living with the Russians.
They did not like having to build new homes.
They were scared of the wild dogs.
