Native American Legends

Origin of Clear Lake

A Patwin Legend

Before anything was created at all, Old Frog and Old Badger lived alone together. Old Badger wanted to drink, so Old Frog gnawed into a tree, drew out all the sap and put it in a hollow place.

Then he created Little Frogs to help him, and working together they dug out the lake.

Then Old Frog made the little flat whitefish.

Some of them lived in the lake, but others swam down Cache Creek, and turned into the salmon, pike, and sturgeon which swim in the Sacramento.
