Manabozho's Berries, an Ojibwe story collected in Paul Radin's Memoirs of the Geological Survey of Canada (1914) and Stith Thompson's Tales of the North American Indians (1929)

While walking along the river he saw some berries in the water. He dived down for them, but was stunned when he unexpectedly struck the bottom. There he lay for quite a while, and when he recovered consciousness and looked up, he saw the berries hanging on a tree just above him.
