Broken War Club

North American - A Metis hunter. Brother of Smoking Mountain. Broken War Club and his brother, Smoking Mountain, met a very hairy but very strong person called Little Man and together they went looking for adventure. One day Broken War Club stayed in the lodge they had found to do the cooking and the other pair went hunting. When they returned, Broken War Club was still moaning from a beating he had received from a tiny dwarf. The same thing happened next day to Smoking Mountain. Little Man stayed home the next day and killed the ugly dwarf who came out from a deep hole. They lowered first Broken War Club and then Smoking Mountain into the hole in a kettle on a rope; they were scared by the noises they heard so Little Man went down. He was attacked successively by monsters with two, then three and finally four heads and killed all three of them. He rescued three girls the monsters had kept locked up and sent them up in the kettle together with much plunder from the monsters' home. When it was Little Man's turn to go up, Broken War Club cut the rope and they left him to die but he managed to climb out. For helping them to settle an argument, a wasp, a worm and a woodpecker each gave him the power to assume their shape. He soon overtook the fleeing men and killed Broken War Club, sent Smoking Mountain packing and kept the girls and the treasure for himself. Also referred to as Broken War Club.
