Salone Sea Gypsies Adventure

 

Once upon a time planet earth after its emergence, created two gods; One was Tuda, the good god and another was Katoi, the evil one. Then, Tuda and Katoi created again Sun and Moon. The couple, Sun and Moon had three offspring - the Star, the Ground and the Sea. Their daily routine works were to look after the respective place and to pay homage to the gods, Tuda and Katoi, the ldest son.

The Star enjoyed wandering about the mountain ranges and he became strong and stout day after day. Middle son, the Ground used to live in the plains between the mountain ranges and the seas.

He enjoyed himself growing plants and building houses. Youngest one, the Sea spent his time swimming and submerging in the wide expanse of blue seas, searching for the marine products.

On the other hand, he studied, paying great interest, on the various guiles of blue seas, strongly attached to the beauty of it. Studying on the seas, he came to know that a boat was a necessity in his life to cross the sea.

Thus, he made a boat that was called Kaban and had learned to navigate skillfully.

Burma is a great adventure destination, usual targets are the islands in the Andaman Sea in the Myeik or Mergui Archipelago and the icy mountains of the north.

One day, he failed to pay homage to two gods because he had forgotten to do so, concentrating his mind on studying about the seas. When he came to notice the two gods he rushed there. But he had lost the way because of the evil spirit's power. Being afraid of the god's severe punishment, he cried out bitterly. Then, he could manage to proceed to the gods only after the dog barked at the evil spirit away. Now he was able to go his own way.

Arriving there, Tuda, the good god did not punish him for being late. But he was severely punished by the evil god. As a punishment, the youngest brother together with his ancestors, had to live at seas, from birth to death, without having a permanent residence. The good god who was sympathetic to the youngest brother, made a powerful decree that he, together with his ancestors had to possess a special ability of swimming and diving. Since that time, the youngest brother and his ancestors came to be Salone Tribe. Helpful dogs were permitted to live on the boat or at the house. It is now a traditional practice.

It was believed that the generations of the eldest brother - the Star in this folklore became indigenous tribes who used to live on plateau of Myanmar. The middle brother- the Ground and his generations became Bamar who used to live in plains. So, there was a Salone saying-" Tanine-Salone Lutwee Attack" in their language. It meant that Myanmar and Salone are indigenous people who are blood brothers.
