Walks All Over the Sky

20 Views

Back when the sky was completely dark there was a chief with two sons, a
younger son, One Who Walks All Over the Sky, and an older son, Walking About
Early.

The younger son was sad to see the sky always so dark so he made a
mask out of wood and pitch (the Sun) and lit it on fire.

Each day he travels
across the sky. At night he sleeps below the horizon and when he snores
sparks fly from the mask and make the stars.

The older brother became
jealous. To impress their father he smeared fat and charcoal on his face (the
Moon) and makes his own path across the sky.
