Indian tribes used tules to make canoes, so, when Sitting Low launched his boat he was really surprised to see this big old wooden thing floating in the bay. Upon closer inspection, he realized that not only was this big old wooden thing a lot sturdier than his canoe, but, that he had obviously been
in a coma for the last 150 years. No wonder he didn't recognize anyone. Suddenly, it became quite clear to him that he possessed first-hand knowledge of historical events that no one else alive knew. He sold the story rights to the highest bidder, changed his name to Riding High and bought a big old wooden thing.
