Story: The hartebeest and the eland belong to the Mantis
The hartebeest and the eland belong to the Mantis
An account of the magic protection afforded by the Mantis to the Hartebeest and to the Eland (that to the latter being chiefly described here), dictated, in the Katkop dialect, by Día!kwãin (L V.-6. 4411-4434). If a man has shot an eland he must perform certain actions to ensure that |kaggen (the Mantis) doesn't come to them or that the eland doesn't get up and run off.
