Why Has Jackal A Long Black Stripe On His Back?






Source: South-african Folk-tales

The Sun, it is said, was one day on earth, and the men who were
travelling saw him sitting by the wayside, but passed him without
notice. Jackal, however, who came after them, and saw him also sitting,
went to him and said, "Such a fine little child is left behind by the
men." He then took Sun up, and put it into his awa-skin (on his back).
When it burnt him, he said, "Get down," and shook himself; but Sun stuck
fast to his back, and burnt Jackal's back black from that day.
