The old woman loved high places: the crest of mountains, lonely and bare, where the clouds and hanging fog blurred the world. There, she could sit with a solitary raven for company and sing her favorite song:

Uwe la na tsiku. Su sa sai
Liver, I eat it. Su sa sai
Uwe la na tsiku. Su sa sai

As she sang, she chuckled to herself remembering her last meal: the succulent, tasty liver of a young boy. The old woman's diet consisted totally of children's livers, and she was very accomplished at trapping them. Here, where the swirling fog and clouds rendered her near invisible, she would sometimes dance, brandishing her stone forefinger. The finger was long as a dagger, slender and sharp as an obsidian knife. Alone in the fog, she slashed the air and laughed.

Then, she would stare at her palm, which pulsed with a slow and steady rhythm. Her heart was in her hand! No one could harm her, even if they forced a spear into her stony breast. She laughed and closing her fingers around her hidden heart, she sang:

Uwe la na tsiku. Su sa sai
Liver, I eat it. Su sa sai

Uwe la na tsiku. Su sa sai

As she danced, the old woman's feet crushed rocks and sank deep into the earth. Her body has the density of stone, and the ground shutters with her awesome weight. The mountain trembles, and boulders shift beneath her feet. There is a sound like thunder, mingled with the old hag's laughter that echoes down the mountain causing birds to take flight and Cherokee hunters to look anxiously at the mountain. "Utlunta!" they say. "Spearfinger!" and then they call the children home.
