I learn more Human folklore and mythology. You got what is hero legends. We got they so well. They legend on how people be strong over bad happening. Maybe is not true happen. I tell you very oldest hero legend Hoidan Zeday got. Is story about Narghay Narghay (transl: Killer Killer). Maybe is no person Killer Killer, but is somebody be first person do action ay did. This origin story so well. Is how Hoidan Zeday be as we is. Maybe Humans learn story, they gooder understand Hoidan Zeday and how we think and do First is I tell you of Hoidan Zeday and Narghay. Then you understand story.
Before Hoidan Zeday be people, we evolve from small animal. Humans do this so well, was monkey people. We be small animal live in cold mountains. We live together as big families, the same as we do now. We climb in mountains, eat plant like fur on rocks (transl: moss?). We eat fruit and nuts and barks. We don’t eat lots because we little.
I think must be we taste good. Narghay like eat us. Narghay fly down, grab little animals and eat they. Narghay is not bird like you got. They don’t got feathers. They got fur like people, keep they warm. They fly fast and quiet, grab and kill and eat. So is, we change. We get bigger. Narghay get bigger. We get fast, they get fast. We learn hide in holes in mountains and sleep in bunches. We don’t got food in mountain holes too much. We got go outside get food. We got go be with mate families so we get pregnant. Then they eat us.
Many lives go, and people get bigger, people walk on two legs. They carry food in arms to holes in mountains. They can stay in holes and be safe. When they eat all the food, they go get more food, Narghay eat they. People get smarter. They learn throw rocks and sticks. Narghay get smarter. They learn fly over family of people. People get scare. They make a bunch. Adult ones protect baby ones. Adult ones stand tall around baby ones. They throw rocks, hold long sticks. They make threat calls. Hooo Hoooo! They scare Narghay.
Narghay fly over families and make scary threat calls at people. Baby ones get scared and cry to they parent. Mnyeh! Mnyeh! Narghay hear they scare calls, they fly at the babies. Babies get so scare the run. Narghay don’t want little babies. They wait big parents. Parent run after baby, get it back with family. Narghay fly down kill parent. Dig in big claws and teeth. Sad babies see they parent get eat. Some is smart and run back to family. Some so scare they stay and Narghay eat they so well. Then all family is sad and scare. Everybody cry and hide in holes, scared and hungry. So many lives from then, we still feel the sad for it.
And this is how we’s ancestors live. Always scared and hungry. That is as it is, until the time come Killer Killer and we learn to be true people.

Don’t Suck Mud
A very long time ago, the Chricktou people developed scientific ways of living and building. We build our habitats of (untranslatable building materials similar to concrete and structural steel), and have scientific ways of growing food. Before then, we built our houses of mud and stones near streams and hunted in the water for animals to eat. Young boys were put in the water and learned to swim and hunt. Older males taught them and watched them. We still like to swim and lay in cool mud, but we don’t do it in dirty streams and we don’t hunt wild food. That is not healthy or productive.
A long time ago, there was a young boy named Seeee Urkkkk, who was very bad and very stupid. His older brothers tried to teach him to be wise and industrious, but he would not learn. All he wanted to do was play in the mud and swim. They taught him how to swim and catch fish-like animals and shell animals to eat. You must grab them with your hands and put them in a net. You must bring them to us so we can see if they are healthy to eat. Do not suck them up in your mouth and eat them. Do not suck up little fish that hide in the mud and eat them. If you are so hunger greedy, you suck up little mud fish, you will suck up bad creatures that will hurt you! They warned him of this many times and said the warning in serious high-pitched tones.
Seee Urkkkk was bad and stupid and lazy. He did not listen to the older boys. He would try to hunt fish and put them in a net. When he got hunger greedy and he saw little animals crawling in the mud under the water, he kicked up the mud and sucked up the little creatures like wild animal ancestors do. His older brothers warned him, but he had no self-control and sucked up mud.
So as it always is, when you behave stupid, bad consequences happen. He sucked up mud and delicious fish, but he also sucked up the little bad creatures. They grabbed the flesh in his mouth and they ate and ate. He screeched calls for help, but it was too late. They ate his face away and he died.
I think maybe I don’t ask Chricktou for stories again.
