Blood Clot

North American - A Ute culture hero. He was reared by an old hunter who had found the blood clot from which the boy emerged. He grew very quickly and killed larger and larger animals as he grew bigger, finally killing a buffalo. He then left his foster father and travelled to another village where he married a daughter of the chief. One day he borrowed an arrow from the chief and called up a huge storm. When the wind abated, a dead buffalo was found outside each tent in the village. His life in the village ended when his wife uttered the forbidden word 'calf' - Blood Clot then turned into the buffalo he really was. At times, known as Blood Clot, Rabbit Boy, Rabbit Boy, Much Blood Boy or We-Ota-Wichasha.
