She is the Frog Princess, who arrived from we know not whence with six very full canoes containing human beings. These became the founding fathers — and mothers — of the Haida people.
Where did they come from and why did they hitch a ride with a frog? Answers are not forthcoming and Dzelarhons has not responded to enquiries. She is also known as the Volcano Woman, which offers little in the way of explanation. Volcano? Frog? Canoes?
After these peculiar quirks it is gratifyingly mundane to discover that the Frog Princess is married to a boring old Bear God named Kaiti.
