A Miwok Legend of How Tol-le-loo Stole Fire: Tol-le-loo, the white-footed mouse saw that neighboring people who lived in the Valley had fire, and so he set out from the Mountains to steal it. Lulling the people to sleep with the sweet sound of his flute, he crept into their village and to the fire, placing the stolen bit into his flute. By turns, Robin, Falcon, Hummingbird came after him to try to recover the fire, but he outsmarted them.
