Q!â'nêqi?laxu makes a House for Only-One. 2

Q!â'nêqi?laxu saw much dirt. He took it and made a house. He finished the house. Then he took water and blew it on the house. Then the house made of dirt became large. It was the house of Only-One. He took cedar-sticks and put them up outside the house, and Q!â'nêqi?laxu took many men and put them inside as posts. 3
