The Sah Basir Legend of Sammakko
There is a Sah Basir legend that tells of Sammakko, the first frog. Other spirits took dominion over mountains and valleys, but Sammakko claimed the waters, hopping from sea, to river, to swampland, and never stayed in one place.
Wherever Sammakko went, he sired children, who became the frogs, toads, and other amphibious creatures around the lands.
Inspired by this legend, many Sah Basir name their ships some variation of “Sammakko.”
