The Boy who Set a Snare for the Sun

8 minutes

The boy was a little pigmy and that the task of providing food fell wholly upon his sister. One day she went out to get some wood for the lodge-fire and took little brother with her. She made him a bow and arrows and said: "I will leave you because I must gather the wood for fire. You should hide yourself, and kill some snow-birds." He tried his best to kill one, but he came home unsuccessful. The sister reassured him and said that he shouldn't despair and try one more time. Next day he succeeded to kill a bird.

He said that he would revenge the Sun for it.
