story of Iyash begins with four people. There was Iyash with two
wives. His first wife was much older and was getting on in years.
He had a chid, a son, who was alive and grown up as a young man
from the first wife. His other wife was much younger and he preferred
her than the older one. They all lived together in their shelter
but the older wife stayed across the fire from Iyash and the younger
The younger wife grew
fond of the son and began to lust for him. She tried to lure him
to her but he did not show interest. But she really wanted him.
So she thought that she would do something bad to him.
This happens to a person
leading a good life. There is always something trying to put that
person in misery or get that person into trouble. This is what that
young lady did.
One day when that young
lady was checking her snares she saw that she caught a partridge
alive. She un-snared the bird and she put it up her thighs. The
bird squawked and scratched her thighs all over. Her thighs were
a mess from all the scratches.
She went home after that.
That night, as her man
turned to her, he found and saw that her thighs were all scratched
up. He asked her why that was so.
"Why are you looking
like that? Your thighs are full of scratches," Iyash asked.
"It was your son that
did that to me yesterday", she replied in an accusatory voice.
The next morning Iyash
was very upset and angry. He decided that he was going to do something
to his son.
He said, "son, let's
go to the lake and look for some eggs".
They lived along the
shores of a big lake. So, they got into the canoe.
" I used to be able to
get some eggs from quite aways out into the lake, so that's where
we're go", said Iyash as they began paddling.
It was a beautiful day,
nice and calm. Iyas and his son were paddling quite a ways into
the lake. They kept paddling to the other side of the big lake far
off from their camp. There were little islands all over and there
were seagulls flying everywhere. Iyash kept telling his son they
still had a long way to go.
" It's still a long way
over there where I used to get the eggs from. That's where we're
going," he said, pointing forward.
Finally they came to
an island that was bare. It had no trees or much vegetation. Iyash
told his son that this was the place. They hit the shore and Iyash
asked his son to get off the canoe and explore the island.
"Go and see if there
are any eggs around there," he said to him. "I will remain in the
canoe. Let me know if you find any eggs and I'll come help you"
The young man got off
the canoe to go look around. Once the young man was off the canoe
Iyash quickly pushed the canoe off the shore and paddled out into
the lake leaving his son behind. The young man called out,
"Father , father, why
are you leaving?".
As he started to paddled
his way home and without even turning to look back Iyash answered,
" I am leaving you here
alone because you are mating your aunt".
Iyash had disowned his
