there was a village. In that village there lived a family. That family
had two sons. The youngest son's name is Eguck, which means "sun and
moon." The other son's name is Elguck, which means "heavenly spirit."
Elguck was a grown man.
Elguck was a hunter and liked being one but he didn't like his
brother much. Yet his brother on the other hand admired Elguck greatly,
as little brothers always do for their big brothers.
One day Elguck was getting ready to go on a hunting trip and Eguck
wanted to go too. He asked his parents, but they said, "No, you're too
young. Wait till next year."
And every year he asked and every time they would say the same
thing. But one year when Eguck was only twelve his parents said, "Okay,
you can go just this once, but stay close to Elguck."
Eguck was so excited that when he went hunting with his brother he
forgot to take his parka and just took his spring jacket. When Eguck
was hunting with his brother it started getting later and dark and
Eguck started getting tired. He fell farther and farther behind, but
his brother did not wait for him. It was cold and he was lost out on
the tundra. He called and called, but he got no answer. But right when
he was just losing hope he saw far off in the distance a small yellow
figure. As it came closer it grew into a beautiful dog. The dog was
like a star straight from heaven, so Eguck named her Glaro, which means
"star of praise."
Glaro gave Eguck company, safety and warmth. Eventually, after much
sniffing, Glaro gave Eguck Elguck's trail. After a while of searching,
Eguck and Glaro finally found that the trail they were following led
eastwards towards Eguck's home!!
And from then on, Glaro, the praised star, was Eguck's lifelong companion!!!
