Description:Translation (by Rita Seng Mai) This story is about how people got fire for the first time and it happened long time ago. People used to eat raw meat many years ago. But they were getting tired of eating raw meat. So they tried to find 'fire'. Then, they saw that there was a fire on the dry wood on the island. They saw smoke as well. They thought of a plan to get that fire. Then a man called Sam Naw who was really good at swimming and climbing trees said that he would bring that fire for all people. After he had brought fire, they cooked their meals with that fire. But they couldn't bring that fire and make a fire inside their house. When they brought fire or made a fire inside their houses, their houses had caught fire. They couldn't also put that fire at dry place or where there was trash. They had to put that fire in the big pit where the wind doesn't blow. Then, they had faced many difficulties in using that fire. So they went to prophets to ask for some advice. Prophets told them if they wanted a fire that was useful and good and couldn't harm people, they had to find people called Kareng Tu Lawn and Ngang Htu But because they two could help. Then they did what prophets told and they could find Kareng Tu Lawn and Ngang Htu But. They two made wick and put it on bamboo slats, and then they started making fire by rubbing two bamboo slats roughly. They really got fire by rubbing bamboo slats. They could make a fire inside the house. They could also use fire wherever they wanted. Since that day, human could use fire well without getting any harm. So people have got fire now.
