Origo Viae Lacteae

de Mythis Cherokiorum de James Mooney

Aliqui in austro habuerunt pistrinum maizio in quo contunderunt maizium et facerunt farem, et aliquod

mane cum venerunt id implere animadverterunt aliquod maizii inter noctem abstulitor. Inspexerunt terram

et invenerunt vestigia canis, itaque inter noctem insequentem invigilaverunt, et quando canis venit ex

septentrionibus et incepit esse farem ex cratera, captaverunt et eum flagellaverunt. Fugit ulula ad domum

septentrione, et dum cucurrit, far cecidit de faucedum, et reliquit vestigium album, ubi nunc videmus

Viam Lacteam, quod ad hunc diem Cherokei appellant Gi`lï'-utsûñ'stänûñ'yï, 'Ubi Canis Cucurrit'.
'Greek had to be simplified, and Latin had to be replaced with Italian, because we barbarians stole so many Greek and Latin words.'
