The sun, moon and the stars
One of the stories of the sun says that he is a man from whose armpits
shine the rays of light. He did not want to share his light with all the
people so he stayed in his hut. The first Busman ordered hi children to
throw him into the sky. They threw him up and this is where he still shines
from today. In the night he is very cold so he draws his blanket over him.
This blanket is very old and has lots of little holes in it. This is the
stars we see at night.
Another tale tells of a young woman who waits for the hunters to return
every night. When it grows dark she throws up a handful of white ash. This
becomes the Milky-way that guide the hunters home.
The moon is believed to be the old shoe of Mantis. He placed it in the
air to guide him at night. The sun is very jealous of the moon when it is
at its full brightness. The sun uses its sharp rays to cut of pieces of
the moon bit by bit until there is almost nothing left of the moon. The
moon begs the sun to stop and then he always goes away. Soon after the moon
starts growing again until it is full and the whole process repeats itself.
