wolf
A man went hunting. When he returned he found the wigwam where he had left his wife torn apart. While looking for her a white wolf appeared telling him that he'll protect him. The man finally found his wife but was put down by others who then killed him by running over him with their horses. The wolf collected all the bones of this man, put them together, and in the third night this man came back to life. The wolf and the man then went to the people who had done this to him and took revenge by killing them the same way they had killed him.
