the creation of human people

In this story, the twins create the people of the earth -- people from yellow tree bark, who they put in the east; people from white sea foam, who they put in the north; people from brown soil, who they put in the south; and people from red clay who say in the west. Salt water divided all the people as they did their own work, until such time as they were ready to all work and live together. J's drawing above, Zoo Boy's below.

J's story summary above, Zoo Boy's below. Ultimately, Tharonhyawa:kon was set in the sky to rule the day as Elder Brother Sun, and Shawiskara was sent to keep his grandmother (Grandmother Moon) company in the nights.

We are all absolutely loving these stories!
