In Issue 32 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the American Indian Hopi legend of the Kachina and the Coyote. Just before dawn one day, the Kachina and Coyote meet on the rim of the mesa. The Kachina bets the Coyote he can’t sing a certain song before the sun rises. Payment for the loser is extreme. So who won the bet? Well you’ll just have to download and read the story to find out. Look out for the moral in the story.

The FREE ADDITIONAL story is about “HURUING WUTHI AND THE SUN” – a Hopi creation legend. Huruing Wuthi, also known as Old Spider Woman, and the Sun get together to bring form to the planet. Once done they see it is in need of animals and people. This legend tells how they go about doing this.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as 'Father of Stories'.

It is believed that folklore and tales are believed to have originated in India and made their way overland along the Silk and Spice routes and through the Middle East and Central Asia before arriving in Europe. Even so, this does not cover all folklore from all four corners of the world. Indeed folklore, legends and myths from Africa, Australia, Polynesia, and some from Asia too, can be altogether quite different and seem to have originated on the whole from separate reservoirs of lore, legend and culture.

The Baba Indaba Children's Stories, published by Abela Publishing, often uses folklore and fairy tales which have their origins mists of time. Afterall who knows who wrote the story of Cinderella, also known in other cultures as Tattercoats or Conkiajgharuna. So who wrote the original? The answer is simple. No-one knows, or will ever know, so to assume that anyone owns the rights to these stories is nothing but nonsense. As such, we have decided to use the Author name "Anon E. Mouse" which, of course, is a play on the word "Anonymous".
