3.2 (a) Tumbainot’s Flood

This story from the Maasai people in Eastern Africa is not documented thoroughly as I could only find it in a German version from the early 20th century. Merker, in his German translation, occasionally explains terms in the footnotes with reference to the original language, but there is no indication that Frazer consulted the Maasai language version in: Africa Maasai

(a.i) Maasai

(a.ii) Frazer (1918) [Abridged]

(a.iii) Merker (1904) (German)
