How to use kana in a sentence
Soon they came to a swamp, and kana′tĭ told them there was something dangerous there and they must keep away from it.
Whenever kana′tĭ went into the mountains he always brought back a fat buck or doe, or maybe a couple of turkeys.
At once there ran out a buck, which kana′tĭ shot, and then lifting it upon his back he started for home again.
A few days afterward kana′tĭ took a bow and some feathers in his hand and started off toward the west.
kana′tĭ stood looking on until he thought they had been punished enough, when he knocked off the vermin and made the boys a talk.
