In addition to heading up npi, he also publishes a journal, Radix, and oversees a small publishing house.
Whitefish, Montana, where npi is based, is apparently not sufficient.
To further his design, npi took the shape of a dog, and turned the youth into a stick.
Taking with him the chief's son, npi travelled toward the west.
npi ran among them, barking, and they were driven out to the prairie.
That night when all was silent npi and the chief's son resumed their human form and supped off the buffalo-meat.
At length they reached a little lodge by the side of a river, and npi called a halt.
This occurred so often that npi suspected that the grey bird was no other than Buffalo-stealer.
His piteous appeals moved the heart of npi, and he let him go, but not without an admonition.
The chief in despair prayed that the creator, npi, would send them food.
