ORIGINS:
After the yukon gold rush left them penniless, many miners were stranded in alaska and became disillusioned hermits. They rejected society and celebrated themselves in feats of courage including cliff driving and wolf wrestling. In a misinterpretation of native beliefs they began worshiping the bears as symbols of their self-reliance and ferocity.

DECLINE:
After several generations, they began believing the bears were in fact manifestations of their ancestors and with proper ritual they too could be resurrected as Kodiaks. After a particularly cold winter, the elk migrations shifted away from the area and the bears coming out of hibernation found little to eat. Members of the cult-like group began self-sacrificing themselves to the starving bears in what was considered the greatest possible act of courage and ancestor tribute. With this ticket to immortal resurrection, all members eventually feed themselves to bears and cult disappeared overnight. The bears survived only to be captured and brought to the prisons of the eastern zoos.
