All That's Left is Struggle:


A raven and a seagull got into a fight over a piece of meat. The raven was on the Inuit's side, the seagull on the side of White Man. They fought for days, for weeks, even for months. Whoever won, his side would be the strongest. They tore and bit furiously at each other. At last the seagull won: White Man would be stronger and more plentiful than the Inuit. But by the time he flew away with the piece of meat, it had become quite rancid.
