Story: Quagga makes flour


Quagga makes flour


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


A description of the preparation of Meal, from the !kaùru ( . . . . . ) berries, was given, in the Katkop dialect, by Díä!kwãin. This is said to have been done formerly by the Quagga, in the days when she was a woman, and carried a sieve (L V.-25. 5997 rev.-6001 rev., note). In Early Times the Quagga and the Baboon were people. The Quagga possessed a mat or a sieve that she used when making flour or meal out of roasted and ground-up berries.


1) Told to Dia!kwain by his father Xaa-ttin, 2) The verso page numbers written in pencil at the top of the story pages are not in the proper sequence: p.5999v is missing and reads p.5998v, followed by p.6000v, 3) This story is found in Book V-25
