The Man Who Fell From Heaven
A close-up aerial view of a petroglyph near Prince Rupert called "The man who fell from heaven".
"A young man was exiled from the village of Metlakatla for a forgotten transgression. Days later he returned to the village, mad with hunger and raved that he had journeyed to the sky and observed many wonders and feats of magic. He lamented that he could have remained forever but somehow fell and plunged from the above back to the village. The elders, while amused by the audacity of the young man's tale, were about to cast him out again when he offered, unexpectedly, proof of his unlikely exploits. He escorted the bemused villagers to Robeson Point and there showed them the crater his body had made when he struck the shore.
He was not only allowed to return to the village but was given a position of honour as shaman." from "The Man Who Fell From Heaven" by Phyllis Bowman
