Bagewa – How the Lizards, Insects and Fish Came to Nauru

Bagewa - How the Lizards, Insects and Fish Came toNauru

 

Once upon a time, a man called Bagewa lived in a land with his two wives, Eimama and Eabeji. There was only one other person in this land, a man called Auriria. As time went on, Eimama bore thirty daughters, and they all had the same name as their mother. Eabeji also had thirty daughters lived together and were very happy with one another. One day, when these children had grown up, they went to the beach to play and, while they were playing, Auriria suddenly appeared and frightened them so much that they ran away. 'Why did you run away?' asked Bagewa when he saw them, and they told him that they had been frightened by a man with a glaring red eye. When Bagewa heard this he was very angry, and went out in search of Auriria. 'Auriria-o-o' he said when he met him, 'Why did you frighten my children?' Soon, Auriria and Bagewa became angry and fell to wrestling and, in the struggle, Auriria fell down and hurt his knee. It bled so much that at last he went down to the sea to wash it, and while he was going to the sea, a strange thing happened. Instead of blood, lizards of all sorts and many kinds of insects came out from his knee. The next day, the children again went to the beach to play, but soon Auriria with the glaring red eye frightened them again, so they ran home and told their father of what had happened. Bagewa at once set out for Auriria's house and as soon as he reached it he called, 'Auriria-o-o! What have you done to my daughters?', and at once began to wrestle with him again. This time Bagewa fell and hurt his knee, and he went to the sea to wash the blood off but, again, a strange thing happened. Out from his knee, came tiny fishes:ekowarug,eamerena,eakiramaram, erubandito. Some time after this, Aurira took the eldest of Bagewa's daughters for his wife, but it made all the sisters very unhappy as they loved her so much. At last, the youngest of the sisters went to him and begged that his wife might be allowed to return to her sisters. At last, he gave her up and she was allowed to return in peace to the sisters who loved her so well. Next day, as the sun went down and the moon arose, the sisters were off to the playground on the sand, and they lived happily with one another ever after.
