Description:A story about a community without men. When men visit the community they are rejected unless they are particularly adept at hunting.
A story about the genesis of mankind from pataju eating money to corn eating monkey, to human. Not all monkeys want to eat corn and become human and conflict ensues.
A traditional account of the origins of sexual relations between men and women. At first men and women did not have sexual inter-course. Rather, reproduction was carried out as follows. Men carried around a coconut shell with a penis-shaped hole in it strapped around their shoulder, and copulated with the coconut shell whenever they felt the urge. When the coconut shell was full of sperm it would be hung up by a hook inside their house three days after which a baby would hatch out. This swift method of reproduction caused overpopulation problems, which were eventually resolved when an ancient monkey from the jungle instructed the men how to copulate with their wives.
