Folk story: Sun child and Jackal
Contributor (researcher):Gertrud Boden
Description:A woman gave birth to a sun baby. The mother does not take her to the breast or hug her because the child is too warm. They bring her food to where she is sitting in the sun until she is grown up and the men start saying: "To what kind of child did you give birth. She cannot get up herself and walk around. Even when she shits, it is the mother who has to throw away her shit." Then they make a plan. The move away and leave her behind. Jackal comes and greets her. He asks how the parents could leave such a nice girl. He teases her, brings her food and suggests that she comes and lives with him. When she agrees and mounts on his back to be carried to his house, he feels her heat. During a rest he grows a hole under the root of a tree. When they continue their way, he walks under the root and she gets off. And he says: "Now I see why the people left you behind." And he walks away forever. From this day on the back of Jackal is black because it was burnt by the sun.
