Description:
This text is one of at least five Central Subanen versions of the sky maiden tale that appears in oral literature around the world. In this telling of the story, a young man falls in love with the youngest of seven maidens disguised as butterflies and then deceives her by hiding her guise in a flute. The tale does not end happily for the young man, in spite of aid given him by a lizard, a heron, ants and a firefly.
