An Arikara woman was once gathering corn from the field to store away for winter use. She passed from stalk to stalk, tearing off the ears and dropping them into her folded robe. When all was gathered she started to go, when she heard a faint voice, like a child’s, weeping and calling:

“Oh, do not leave me! Do not go away without me.”

The woman was astonished. “What child can that be?” she asked herself. “What babe can be lost in the cornfield?”
