Long ago, all living creatures on this land shared a special balance with one another. The pugulatmu'j--the little people--were the original guardians of the land, and they looked after all living things. As time passed, we forgot these playful yet powerful guardians, but they did not forget us. Occasionally, they make their presence known with the little tricks they play. When her hair clip disappears, Mali is devastated. It was special, made by her giju. Her mom thinks she lost it, but Mali knows it was stolen by a Little Person.
