A primeval Giant from the mythology of the Kutenai Native Americans. On his head he wore a magical headdress that caused him to live forever. He was one of the first beings and he travelled around the Earth on all fours fearing that he was too tall to stand up. Where he travelled he would leave scars on the Earth that became topographical features. As he traversed the land he named different objects of the world. Finally, he stood up but when he did, his head hit the Heavens and his headdress fell off. With his vitality power gone, Nalmuqtse died.
