"One day the maiden was gathering wood when she felt something touch the woods and she was frightened and ran home; though she did not know it, the Sun Spirit had touched her, after this for six months she and the Sun never met; then twins were born to her called Nayenezgani and Tobaschischin, "Slayer of Enemy Gods" and "Born from the Water." They grew strong and well and at sixteen years they were anxious to find out who was their father, and one day their mother pointed to the Sun and said,"That is your father"."
