Toi-!kwiten Light - About the Gwi





Toi-!kwiten - ostrich egg in |Xam language

Pisamboro, one of the Gwi's lesser gods, spotted a redhot coal under the wing of the ostrich, a legendary being. Intrigued, he stole the coal and gave fire to men. He then threw it three times into the sky. By the third time it stayed in the sky and became the sun.
