Ridiculed because of his scarred face after falling into a fire, Burnt Face is a weeping recluse until he crosses manhood. While fasting on a mountain he moved rocks to form the first "medicine wheel."
Another account regards Burnt Face's scars being healed by Eagle by ridding the eagle of Otter, a predator feeding on eagle eggs. Burnt Face now marries and lives long. Hence, prospects fast at medicine wheel during visions quests.
