1: At one time there was no sun and moon, there was always complete darkness. This tale tells how the sun and the moon got into the sky and how the giraffe got its long neck. One day a regular short neck giraffe was wandering the vast forest and there was a bountiful amount of fruit on the trees. This giraffe had very good stature. Later that day the giraffe inadvertently ran into a very hot item. The giraffe looked up and the hot item asked him if he would help him into the sky. The giraffe said "yes".
2: Later that day the giraffe ran into something very hard. The giraffe looked up and the hard item asked the same thing as the hot item. The giraffe said "yes".
3: He got them both together and called them "sun and moon". The next day he roused them both awake.
4: He told them his intentions were for them to bounce on top of each other to be resourceful and save food. While they did that he would push them with his head.
5: Suddenly his neck grew. It grew far enough to get the sun and moon into the sky. Finally there was light and darkness on earth.
