                  MMONs] FOLKTALES 369

                  The sun said to them, "Tanuru hupitanin, no, dear child, do not
                  think such thoughts." So they went back to their place. But ail
                  night they were wishing to see the young man in the other world,
                  and they hoped that the next morning Nashon~uchu would do again
                  what he had done. In the morning Nashôn'uchu did the same thing
                  when the sun was rising. Because of the wishes and hopes of the
                  girls the kick stick did not reach thé east, but the noon time place
                  (pienai). Blue Corn girl and Yellow Corn girl opened the gate of
                  the world, and the kick stick came down to the earth where the two
                  girls were. Then Nashon'uchu, when he found that his Mck stick
                  was down there, stopped at the gate and said, "E-e abu, oh my!
                  Blue Com girl and Yellow Com girl." He found out at once their
                  thoughts. Those girls wanted to marry Nashôn'uchu. So he said,
                  "Nobody can marry me." Then the two girls laughed and said,
                  "On orie~, shame! shame and bowed their heads over their grinding
                  stones. One was grinding corn and one was grinding wheat. Blue
                  Corn girl was feeding the sun with com meal. Yellow Corn girl was
                  feeding the people of thé world with wheat flour. They had their
                  grandmother (chPi) there. She was sitting by thé. fire. Then the
                  old woman spoke to them, "E-e abu maku (grandcbild) ee abu maku!
                  huniwa eyepiaweky. Do not think such thoughts 62 You are not
                  supposed to marry Nashôn~uchu." Nashon~uchu was standing at the
                  gate, listening, and he asked the girls to give him the kick stick, that
                  he was working for his father, the sun, and for ail the world, so the
                  people would have a good life and a long life. Now his father would
                  be missing the kick stick and would be late. He asked the girls
                  three times. They said they were not going to give him back the
                  kick stick unless he promised to marry one of them. He answered
                  that he could not marry. He said, "If you do not give my kick
                  stick, I am going. I am late meeting my father." So he started
                  to the sunset. When he got there he was late; his father was gone
                  already. Then he turned back, sorry, worrying about his kick stick.
                  He stopped again at the gate at sunrise. He spoke, "Akuwam~
                  (greetings)." The old women answered, "Akuwam~, grandcbild."
                  He asked again for his kick stick. After he had left the girls they
                  went up on top of the gate with the kick stick, and they were singing.
                  Then they threw the com meal to thé north, koannwetoe. They
                  flew out, and they shook their wings. That made the wind blow on
                  the world-that was what made the wind. They descended at the
                  mountain Narpyenai', on top of the mountain. On the other side of
                  the mountain was a big mesa, Midpato', mesa sheer. They threw
                  There is an Isletan tale, recalling a Zufii tale, in which the Corn girls compete for NasMrochi hy
                  throwing their meal at an abalone shell in the wall to see if it will stick.

                  The différence in the phrase as used by the sun was explained on the ground that women say words
                  alittle differently from meB.
