The Legend of the Lalihote

Long ago, there lived a humble young man named Lalihote in a remote village of ancient Gorontalo. One night, Lahilote who lived near a water spring which was the upper stream of a river and made a living by collecting rattan in a nearby forest dream that was given a piece of such big rattan called “Hutiya Mala”. The young man sprang up from his sleep upon the surprising dream.

A few days later on his way to the forest, Laholote chanced to glance down the river and see a group of seven beautiful fairies who were bathing joyfully. The seven beauties left their “selendangs”, the magic scarves they used as the wings, on the river-bank. Greed soon lured Lahilote to steal and hide one of the selendangs. As they were aware of the presence of Laholote, the fairies soon stopped bathing and go out of water and fetched their selendangs. They all flew to the heaven leaving the poor one who cried and sobbed desperately because she could not find her selendangs. Lahitole approached and comforted her, then brought her some proposed her to be his wife. The beautiful accepted his proposal and soon they married.

One day, lahitole told his wife that he had go to the forest to collect rattan. His wife insisted to accompany him but he did not let her go with him. To keep herself if busy Lahitole’s wife wondered over the house amd by chance she found her lost selendang kept very carefully in a bamboo tube. She felt very happy but at the same time very disappointed to know her husband’s unfairness. She soon wear the selendang and flew away to the heaven leave her husband behind.

Lahilote got home happily because at that time he succeeded in collecting a great deal of rattan. But soon he got very much disappointed to know that his wife had flown away and the bamboo tube where he had kept the selendang was empty. At that very difficult moment, suddenly came a wise Polahi (a certain tribe living in the forest) man who gave him a piece of magic rattan. He told Lahitole that the rattan could bring him to the heaven. Eventually, Lahilote succeeded to fly to the heaven and meet his beloved wife. Lahitole was allowed to stay in the heaven.

After some time, when his wife was looking for lice Lahilote’s head, she happened to see some garying hairs among his. Soon she sprang up and got away from her startled husband. She told him that no one with graying hair is allowed to stay in heaven. Upon his questions, she told her husband: “Love fades away when you get a graying because here in heaven you are no more than a shadow as soon as you get a piece of graying hair.”

Broken-heartedly, Lahilote got down from the heaven making use of a piece of board. He swore: “From this point of Pohe beach up to the border of the shroud to cover my dead body, my left foot-print will be printed forever.”

At the moment we can find a stone in the beach of Pohe, in the Province of Gorontalo with a foot-print stamped on it. The locals believe that is the foot-print of Lahilote.

The Legend of Redfish

Once upon a time there were many swordfish in the sea near Singapore.
These swordfish caused a great deal of trouble. They flew into boats and sometimes killed fishermen. There were so many of these swordfish that the Raja decided to kill them.

So the Raja brought his army down to sea to fight the swordfish. Many people came to watch the battle, and among them was a very clever little boy. The little boy watched the soldier in their uniform, their long swords shining in the sun. He thought to himself that he would like to be a soldier when he grew up.

When the captain gave the signal, the soldier stood in long line on the beach and waited for the swordfish to attack. Soon the swordfish came leaping and flying across the water. Wave after wave of then came. They noses, and many soldiers died. Suddenly, the little boy saw the raja sitting sadly beneath a tree. He ran to raja and said. “Please, sir I think I know how to stop the swordfish.”

“Do you. Indeed, little boy?” said the Raja looking to a cut at the boy’s bare feet and ragged clothes.
“Yes, Sir,” the boy said. “Tell the soldiers to take those the banana trees over there. Then tie the trees together to make a wall to stop the fish.”
“That’s wonderful idea,” said the Raja. He turned to his captain. “Why didn’t you think of that, Captain? Tell your men to start at once.”

The captain looked angrily at the little boy before he told his men what to so. The soldiers cut the banana trees and tied them together with strong ropes. They used more ropes to pull the wall to the edge of the water. This time, when the sword came, they flew out of the water and their swords stuck in the wall of banana trees. They couldn’t move, and so it was easy for the soldier to kill them. “Well done, men.” said the Raja to the soldiers. “And thank you, little boy’” he said to the boy.

The little boy bowed to the Raja and ran back to his home on the hill by the sea. The Raja thoughtfully watched him go. That’s very clever child,” he said to the captain.

The captain was still angry because the boy had made him took stupid. “Perhaps, sir, he is too clever. Clever little boy can grow into dangerous man.”

The Raja thought about this, and the more he thought the more he worried. A few days later the captain came to see him again. “Sir” he said. “I am worried about that little boy. He is too clever. Someday, he will make a lot of he will make a lot of trouble for us.” “You are right, Captain,” said the Raja. “I think we should stop him now, before it’s too late.” “Good,” said the captain. “I’ll take care of it tonight.” That night the captain and some of his soldiers climbed the hill where the little boy lived. They quietly went into his house and killed him with their swords. The little boy’s blood ran freely down the hill. Soon the whole hill had turned red, and it is red to this every day. When the people heard the Raja’s captain had done, they named his place Redhill. And even now, they remember the story of the clever little boy who stopped the swordfish.
