Wekwek

North American - A falcon. In one version of the legends of the Indians of the south-west coastal area, this bird stole fire and accidentally set the world ablaze when he dropped it. The fire was put out by Olle. Another story says that he was killed when he was defeated by the giant, Kelok, in a stone-slinging contest, but Coyote restored him back to life. It was the body of Kelok, which was burned, which started the world-wide blaze. Called Wekwek.
