According to a folk tale, an arctic fox is running far in the north and touching the mountains with its fur, so that sparks fly off into the sky as
the northern lights. Another story says the fox throws the northern lights up into the sky by sweeping snow upwards with its tail. One version then
explains how moonlight is reflected from the snowflakes swept up into the sky by the fox's tail.
( Fox´s fire, Firefox, revontulet etc )
Sami people also some Ingenious tribes of North America and Eskimos believe northern lighs are the souls of dead people. People who died too early or
violently and Aurora was home for those souls. Eskimos believe that some of the souls go to ground and some up to the sky and these sky souls play
football with the skull of walrus.
Makah Indians believe that northern lights were lit up by dwarfs. Menomini Indians believe there is a Giant who is fishing in the northern Sea. And
so on... many tales
