Story card comes with piece; A man went into the mountains to hunt and was captured by a Black Bear, and carried back to his den. Instead of killing the hunter, the Bear taught him many things, including how to catch salmon - at which men have excelled at ever since. When the man returned to his village, he took the Black bear for a crest, and from then on, whenever he was in trouble, he received help from his Bear friends.
