Creation Story

Of the Cherokee

Chizuru Aso, Monica Demaray, Valerie Brodkorb

slide2

Long ago, before there were any people, the earth was a great island floating in a sea of water, suspended by four cords hanging down from the sky vault, which was made of solid rock.

slide3

It was dark and the animals could not see, so they got the sun and set it in a track to go across the island every day from east to west, just overhead.

slide4

The Creator told the animals and plants to stay awake for seven nights. But only a few of the animals were able to, including owls and panthers, and they were rewarded with the power to go about in the dark.

slide5

Among the plants, only the cedars, pines, spruces, and laurels stayed awake, so they were allowed to remain green year-round and to provide the best medicines.

slide6

The Creator chided the other trees: "Because you have not endured to the end, you shall lose your hair every winter."

slide7

Peopleappeared last, after the animals, the sun, and the plants, but they multiplied so quickly that they threatened to overrun the world.

slide8

So it was decided that each woman would have only one child a year, and  it has been that way ever since.
