The Cow-Tail Switch
The moral of the legend is to be thankful for what you have. In the legend, Ogaloussa dies and his sons don't go to look for him until the newborn son"s first words are "Where is my father?". Once the father is brought back to life the sons admire the cow-tail switch their father made.
The legend takes place in the village of Kundi in somewhere in West Africa. The village is at the edge of the Liberian rain forest(where Ogaloussa was killed) by the Cavally river. There are rice and cassava fields in all directions with cattle grazing by the river.
The climax is when Ogaloussa tells the village that he will give the cow-tail switch to the son that did the most to bring him home. When Ogaloussa said that the sons and then the village began to argue who should get the cow-tail switch..
The conclusion is when Ogaloussa gives the cow-tail switch his youngest son, because if the son didn't say "Where is my father?" then Ogaloussa would have never been found.
