The primary source of /Xam sidereal narratives are the well-known works by Bleek and Lloyd. We present two new /Xam accounts, explaining the origin of the Sun and the origin of the Evening Star, as collected and retold in Afrikaans by G R von Wielligh in <I>Boesman-Stories</I>. We also give an English translation of those parts of the book containing astronomical references.
