From the recording Qualchan Opera - instrumental version 02
SONG 16 THE HERO – 2:15 (Sung by Whist-alks and Qualchan as a duet) Whist-alks tells Qualchan after a battle that the tribes consider him a hero. Qualchan relates the story of how his scouting party fought some American Miners who failed to heed his warnings to stay away. He was blamed for killing Indian Agent Bolon but is innocent. Qualchan returns to the fight, leaving Whist-alks to wait.
