-Sis Yis - Founder of Shaman
-Nuj Nplhaib- The tiger cub
-Orphan and three animals- Becoming blind in the cave and listen where the wealth is hidden.
-Woodcutter, the wife and his chicken- The wife kills the husband's precious chicken.
-Orphan who took the bride to the sky- The Frog that swallows the pond.

There are many stories about the orphan boy.

I think one of the popular orphan story is the one where the orphan go to a place where there were a bear, wild cat, and tiger talk having a secret meeting. There the three reveals the location of gold. The orphan took the gold and became wealthy.

1. how the zaj lost its tail
2. the poor orhpan girl whose mother takes various forms to still help her. I think her mom turned into a cow, a tree, etc. (nkauj no? and nu shee long?)
3. the story of the bride who told her husband not to open the door for 7 days after their wedding to prevent something bad, but he didn't so she was kidnapped. O_O

I remember the story about a husband died and was bury outside/inside (depending which version you were told) and becomes a tiger to eat the wife and children. In some version the tiger ate one of his children, in others he didn't. And of course the husband was killed by a gun when he start counting the star in the water.

There is a similar version about the tiger and husband. In this version the tiger kills the husband when he was hunting. The tiger took the form of the husband. In some version it's a tiger wearing the husband clothes. Anyway the children and wife learn about the tiger when they spotted the tiger's tail. How the tiger was kill? I recall the tiger got jab by a water buffalo horns.

I doubt it... my mom told me this story and I'm sure it was her mother that told her.

Cinderella wasn't created in just 70 years ago. :2funny:
