≠kainyatara and the Ostrich


Lucy Lloyd |xam notebooks


The Ostrich who ran away with #kainyatára and gave him as a husband to her daughter. By /han≠kass’o (L VIII. 30. 8628-8636). A story of the Early Race. The Ostrich snatches up ≠kainyatara and runs off with him. She sets him down next to her daughter 'Yolk' (or ≠kariten), introducing him as the girl's new husband because the two resemble each other so strongly.
