Note: “In one excerpt Keeveeok loves and marries a bird-woman and fathers several bird children as depicted in ‘Keeveeok’s Family’ ... Keeveeok’s mother was scornful of the bird family because the bird-people would not eat meat and so she was much opposed to Keeveeok’s marriage. The print shows the birds eating plants and sand in preference to meat.”
