Legend has it that many, many years ago, the Khoisan people of Africa’s Kalahari Desert created the stars.

Khoisan folklore says that one evening a young, lonely girl was dancing around the night fire when she threw glowing embers high up into the sky. The embers remained as a wide shimmering pathway, illuminating the once pitch-black sky and allowing the girl to visit distant villages when the moon was not shining.
