North American - A sky-god of the tribes of the north-west. Snoqalm kept all the light in a box. Spider wove a rope for Snoqalm to descend to earth but, while he was there, Beaver climbed up the rope and stole the box, hanging the sun in the sky as he climbed down again. Other versions say that it was Fox who climbed the rope, changed into Beaver and returned to earth with trees as well as fire. Snoqalm, in his haste to catch the intruder, fell to earth and was killed. Also commonly known as Snoqalm.
