The man of tales and the squirrel

A Khanty folktale about a man living alone after his family and people are killed by enemies. One day, while hunting in the nearby forest, he meets a Khanty speaking squirrel. After a few encounters, the squirrel reveals itself to be a beautiful young woman. The lonely man and the squirrel woman marry and live happily ever after.

Recording: The story was recorded in Katravozh in 1990 by Irina Nikolaeva.

    There were demons that made war. There was a big village, there was a big town, they ate up all the people. Everybody perished, one boy stayed in the corner of a house. One boy stayed, he lived in the town for a long time, for a short time. He saw no demons after he stayed, he saw no spirits. He lived, lived, grew up to be a man, grew up to be a hunter and a fisher. He lived in the forest and the abandoned town. He hunted and fished. Once while he was going through the woods, little pieces of something ell on his shoulders. He did not care. He took his cap off. He did not care. He went on.

    He came home, hung up his fur coat. He hung up his fur coat and a whole hat-full of cones fell out of it, he did not want to open them. He took them and put them in a corner of the house. They lay, he said “Let them lie, perhaps in the days when I will be very hungry, perhaps in grief when i will be in my woods, when my heart knows woe.” He went, he went again, and came home. He started to hang up his fur coat again, once again cones fell, a whole hat-full from his coat. He gathered them up again and put them down. He went for the third time. He went for the third time, it was a large forest, in the middle of this forest there was something, but he had not seen it his whole life. He had grown to be a big man, he had grown to be a stout man. But he had not seen it. Well, fine.

    He went for the third time, suddenly a squirrel jumped on the top of a tree and talked in the Khanty language, chatted. It said: “Wait a bit, poor man, whose people died. I have good words for you, if you keep on living, if you can continue to live according to my words.” Then he stopped. He said: “I am going. As long as i have lived, while my bones were growing, while my body was growing, I have spoken my mother tongue to no one. I have no companion.” The squirrel said: “You’re going home now, going home, how many cones did you find?” “How many cones did I find? I,” he said, “found cones in groups of seven four times and put them somewhere. I put them somewhere.” The woman said: “You’re going home now, you’ll get home, the way your house and benches have become so nice, you’ll get more. Open the cones four times in groups of seven.”

    The man went on. He went on. The squirrel said: “When day breaks tomorrow, I will be here. Here there is a big forest, while you were growing, you never went into this forest, there are no traces of you.” Well, fine. The man cam home. He came home, rested. And sure enough, he took seven cones. He took seven cones and broke them open. Then he looked to both sides and his benches had become so beautiful, animals were lying on them, sables were lying. He thought: “Where will I put so much? Everything is here.” He opened up another seven cones and in these seven cones were golden rings. He put them on his fingers, it started to glitter. He thought: “I must have fallen onto riches.”

    After short or long the morning of tales arrived. He thought for a long or a short time and left. He went on the same path. He went on the same path and the animals, sables just fell, he hunted so well. Again he came to the same squirrel. Actually it was a woman. He did not know that it was a woman. The squirrel talked, they greeted one another, they hailed one another. She said: “How did you fulfil my words?” “I,” he said, “fulfilled your words somehow.” “What do you intend to do now? Your mind,” she said, “has become very good.” “If I were to take the path of my mother, the path of my father.” He hunted for a long or a short time, the squirrel said: “ Go still, break open another seven cones. Put two more groups of seven cones into your pocket. Put them into a pocket or some such opening you have, start carrying them, don’t break them open. Tomorrow you’ll catch fish, go into the forest where you have never been.”

    He thought and broke open another seven cones, nothing more, and again looked on both sides. He was happy and started to live on like he had lived. How he had lived before, everything had ended. The next day broke, he went off again. He though: “I killed no game, I’ll go into the forest.” He went into the big forest, and there he found a house like in a town, a place like that and there were people, he could see them coming and going. Suddenly the squirrel jumped out of the forest. It jumped out, threw the squirrel skin into a corner of the house and became a woman, glittering like gold. He said: “While I have lived on the earth, I have looked for a life-companion to live with, a companion for living on the bench, a companion for living by day, but I have found none all my life.” She said: “This is the place for us to live. Here we will live.”

Then it came into the house and said: “I’m thinking of grandfather.” His mother said: “What grandfather are you thinking of?” “What grandfather I’m thinking of? I’ve started to think of my father’s father.” Then the woman said: “Don’t think of anything. Until your own mother, the mother whose breasts fed you says so, don’t think.” The child would not let up. Then the mother said: “How can we bear this child? People-eating demons are still at large.” Then the child said: “When I get big, I will wipe all the people-eating demons off the face of the earth.” The father said: “Right, if our child starts killing demons what will happen? My father and mother were eaten, but I couldn’t kill the demons.” The woman said: “Go, go back to your house. Go to your house, but don’t enter it right away. Make noise, knock the skis together. Knock at the corner of the house.”

I have come home to our town, to our village. I came to live together with you in his place.” Suddenly he looked and her husband, the old man, was putting up a house and was building a town, one like a village. He was chopping with an axe. Wood chips were flying. She looked properly: grandfather and grandson were making a house, were building.
