Book Peace Dancer by Roy Henry Vickers and Robert Budd.
The children of the Tsimshian village of Kitkatla love to play at being hunters. But when they capture and mistreat a crow the Chief of the Heavens angered at their disrespect brings down a powerful storm.
The rains flood the Earth and villagers have no choice but to abandon their homes and flee to their canoes. When the people promise to change the storm stops and the waters recede. From that point on the villagers appoint a Peace Dancer to perform at every potlatch and pass on the story of the flood.
