A note to the story of The !kwai !kwai, the Mantis and the children


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


The !kwái–!kwái, the Mantis, and the Children. The !kwái–!kwái, who was formerly a man, and is now a bird (in appearance somewhat resembling a 'duiker'), comes, during the absence of their parents, to kill the children. They are defended by the Mantis, who causes the death of !kwái–!kwái. By /han≠kass’o (L VIII.-3. 6304–6322, 4. 6323-6333). A note to the above story was also given by /han≠kass’o (L VIII.-18. 7596, 7597 and 7595 rev.). |kaggen (the Mantis) puts the !kwai !kwai on the fire to roast (and in so doing kills it) because he wants to resurrect the children the !kwai !kwai has killed. The children return to life.
