TITLE: The Creation of the Earth

MYTH: One day the Water God, Poseidon, and the Volcano God, Hephaestus, had a disagreement. None of the gods knew why they hated each other so much. Poseidon struck Hephaestus with his strong trident, and Hephaestus was in such great pain he started to cry lava. The lava soon hardened, and that created the earth’s foundation. But Poseidon and Hephaestus were still fighting. Hephaestus was angry, and he hit Poseidon hard this time with his hammer. Poseidon began to cry, and in his great pain, his tears formed a body of water, the ocean. Soon Aphrodite, Hephaestus’ wife had a child, but this child had special seeds that he planted on earth. Every seed turned into grass and trees. There were two special seeds, however, that soon sprouted into the first man and woman. This was the beginning of the earth, life, and humans.

TITLE: The Creation of Bats

MYTH: Once upon a time, there was a colony of rats. One young rat named Shakalla was playing on a cave where she was not allowed to be. A rock fell from the ceiling and crushed her arms and dust flew into her eyes. She was blinded and her arms were flat. All she had lefts were her thumbs. She was so scared, she couldn't move. When the rest of the rat colony came looking for her where there had been an earthquake, all of the rest of the rats were crushed just like her. Some died or were wounded, but most got their arms crushed. They were all blinded from the dust, and everyone was so scared they couldn't talk anymore. All they could do was chatter their teeth in fear. The young rat realized that if she moved her arms very fast she could hover.

One day when she told the rest of the rat colony about how to hover, they loved it. They could all learn to fly, and so they realized it was safer to stay on the ceiling to avoid falling rocks. They had no hands, so they had to hang upside down which began to stretch their ears. They only come out at night because the light hurt their eyes. Their children began to explore, and they can now be found all around the world. They are still scared of the rocks, and to this day, still chatter their teeth.?

Night and Day

MYTH: Once upon a time when the earth was young, and life was just starting to become normal, the world was at peace because the balance of the world was perfect. Up in the sky world above were born two baby god children named Lumo and Sol. Lumo and Sol were twins. They were the children of the god of light and the goddess of darkness, and the grandchildren of the sky god. Lumo and Sol constantly fought as they weren't just siblings but they were twins. They disagreed on everything.

As the twins grew older, their Grandfather, the God of the Sky, assigned them the task of separating the light and the darkness. Sol named his creation Day, and Lumo named his creation Night. Next, Grandfather Sky assigned Sol and Lumo to give their creation to the world below, but he warned them that they must give Day and Night equal time to the world below. If one or the other was longer, the balance of the world would be broken. But as they were twins, they still fought.

Lumo believed that he should go first in placing the sun in the sky so that the people on the earth could enjoy the warm sunlight. Lumo thought that the moon should be placed in the sky first so that people could enjoy the brightness of the moon. As the twins fought over who would be first in position, their grandfather came to them in their dreams warning them that, if the perfect balance was broken, all the bad things in the world would come to the people below.

When the twins awoke they agreed that Lumo would begin the morning by raising the sun to start the day, while Lumo would rule the night. The Grandfather was proud of his children, but he sensed unease in Lumo’s heart. Unfortunately, the Grandfather was coming close to his death. His last wish to his grandchildren was that they keep the peace. The day after the Grandfather’s death, the twins decided they would set the Sun and the Moon in the sky, but Lumo still had a blackness in his heart. So when the day came to give the Sun and the Moon to the people, as Sol was putting the Sun in the sky, Lumo tossed the Moon into the sky in front of the Sun. That is why the Moon occasionally glows red. When Sol found out what his brother had done, it was too late. The balance of the world was broken. Sol’s fury was so great that he tossed his brother into the depths of the Underworld, Sol took his place as the king of the heavens, while Lumo became the king of the Underworld. This is why daytime is associated with life and joy, while night is associated with death and fear.

TITLE: The 5 Gods of the 5 Worlds

MYTH: Before the world was created, there was only darkness. Out of the darkness, came 5 gods: Moetsi, the creator, Razarac, the destroyer, Vida, life, Olum, death, and Balan, balance. Moetsi realized it was too dark, so he created a ball of fire and called it the Sun. They were all surprised and happy to see each other as they were not able to see in the darkness until now. They talked excitedly to each other but soon got bored. They liked to hang out with each other but got a little depressing with only the five of them.

One day, Vida thought of an idea of making people to talk to. They all liked the idea. And started making their own little group of beings. Moetsi created dwarves, Razarac created the cyclops, Olum created ghouls, Vida created elves, and Balan created humans. The gods created the first land to hold these beings. The land they made was light but had very little color. Each god placed their own little tribe of beings down onto the new, created world. The people started walking around and talking to each other. The gods wanted their people to live in a beautiful world, so they started making and decorating. Olum took some beads from his tunic, crushed them, and threw them into the sky. He called them the Stars. Then he realized that one piece was a lot bigger than the rest. Razarac used his whip to pull it toward the new world. This piece was not only bigger, but brighter than the rest. It seemed as if it gave an aura of power to the gods. They called this the Moon. This new extra power helped the gods be able to make things quicker. The gods made more things for the beings, as they were not immortal like them. Soon they have made potatoes, carrots, trees, water, and etc. The people began to thrive.

Then, one day, a human accidentally went into a cyclops's territory. The cyclops took this as an insult and waged war on the humans. The fight started affecting the other groups of beings and soon the entire world was at war. To stop this, Balan created 5 similar copies of the first world and left the peaceful, good hearted ones. He sent the rest of each type of being into one of these worlds and made sure that no one can find out or find the other beings. Balan used up so much energy doing this that the Moon went black. He went back and told the other gods that they should look out for the worlds, one world for each god. The next day, the Moon was back to it’s shining self again. Although the war has ended, and the people are separated, every month, the Moon turns black, and weakens the force that stops the worlds from finding each other.
NAME: Adam
TITLE: Nwo?n-fihanibiti-mo-wa the Cow

MYTH: In the beginning the Universe was empty. Only one god was alive. His name was K a-awo?n oruko?-oris?a. He just was there, doing whatever he wanted and drinking his favourite drink, milkiwannatiti-nobu. One day he decided to bring life to the Universe. He created a cow, and called it Nw o?n-fihanibiti-mo-wa. N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa was extremely smart and powerful, so Ka-awo?n oruko?-oris?a would have somebody to talk to and relate to.

One day he accidentally spilt some milkiwannatiti-nobu.The milkiwannatiti-nobu spread across the vast darkness of the Universe, creating galaxies. Ka-awo?n oruko?-oris?aregardedthisasamistakeandignoredit,butNw o?n-fihanibiti-mo-wa took this as inspiration. He dove down to one of the milk swirls and did a massive fart. The fartgas pooled in tiny spheres of swirling fartfire. He named these stars. He then broke a part off his hoof and spread the hoof dust around the milk swirl. The smaller particles were very fast, and zoomed through the swirls.

N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa called these asteroids. The larger particles were slow, and wandered through the galaxy until they found a star. Then they would start to orbit the star. N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa called these planets. He repeated this with all the swirls. Because of N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa’s extreme power, this only took a few hours. N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa could not manage the whole galaxy collection by himself, so he created thousands of lesser gods who were not as powerful as N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa but more powerful than the life forms on the planets. They included Emi-Ni, the air god, Lo?, the land god, Lati-Farasin, the water god, Ri-Mi, the fire god, Ni, the death god, Apa-Ohun, the star god, T i-o-ba-je?, the rock and asteroid god, Eranko, the food god, Ti-Ya, the drink god, Mi-Kuro, the science god, Si s?e, the family god, and other sub-gods like cheese god, orange god, seawater god, luck god, and many more. N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa then created creatures who were not very powerful or strong and set them onto some of the planets. They were very different from one another. N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa declared himself the King of this Collection of Swirls.

K a-awo?n oruko?-oris?a won't mind, he thought. Ka-awo?n oruko?-oris?a was asleep during this , and when he woke up he was furious!Nw o?n-fihanibiti-mo-wahaddeclaredhimselfaking!OnlyNagiWa-Titi Bonbo could be a king. He killed N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa . N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa ’s blood splattered across the galaxies, landing on planets and asteroids. His blood created life. Some of his blood landed on the stars, burning up and creating a barrier around the galaxies, so no matter how hard Ka-awo?n oruko?-oris?a, he could not get past the barrier and eliminate the life and the gods in the galaxies. We will always have N wo?n-fihan ibiti-mo-wa’s protection.

TITLE: Is it an asteroid?

MYTH: A long, long time ago, there was an asteroid. It was a very extremely HUGE asteroid. It was made of two parts, one half was made of red and brown rock, but it looked like it was on fire! The other half was made of a blue and purple rock/ice, and it was very cold there. On the fire part, there lived The Fire Goddess, named Kwaniekwahulu. Kwaniekwahulu was the most powerful thing on the Fire side of the asteroid. She was made out of lava and stone. She could control the fire and the lava. She, was invincible. On the other side however, there lived The Ice God, named Kwakwani Kuloo. Kwakwani Kuloo, was the most powerful thing on the Ice side of the asteroid. He was made out of ice and stone. He could control the Water and the Ice. He, was also invincible. In between each of the worlds, there was a portal that separated the two worlds. The perimeter of the portal was made of black and white rock. There was a barrier around the outside of the asteroid that was made out of a poisoned gray fog. There were two portals, one in the front and one at the back off the steroid. One day, Kwaniekwahulu ( the fire god ) went close to the front portal, and the heat went through and melted a big section on the ice. Then he put lava into the water to make it into rock. That was how the land was made.

The two gods got married and gave birth to a son called Maona. He was the God of Nature, and he made the trees and the plants that were on the asteroid. When the two gods got married and gave birth to Maona, they lost all of their power, so they were no longer invincible, and the asteroid was no longer moving like it was before. After Maona made the asteroid look like a green furball, Kwaniekwahulu and Kwakwani Kuloo, decided to rename the asteroid as Earth. After the Earth was named the Earth, Maona got a sister. She was called Moana, she was the Goddess of the wild life. She made all of the mammals and all of the predators, all the birds all the fish. She made all of the animals on earth only out of the designs of animals that she carved out of trees, and Kwaniekwahulu made the designs come to life.

The family lived very happy for a long long time, there was everything. But Kwaniekwahulu and Kwakwani Kuloo wanted more. They wanted to have people to live on Earth too. Moana and Moana gave birth to a son called Unkulunkulu and a daughter called Tulip. They were the very first people to live on the planet Earth. One day, Kwakwani Kuloo was enjoying the creation that they have created. But then, one of moana’s species called the Dinosaurs attacked him. He got very mad. He wiped out most of the Dinosaurs that lived on Earth. Moana had realised and told her brother Maona. He got very angry at him and sent him to a realm called Whanau, where bad is all that can be seen, heard, and said. And to protect his mother Kwaniekwahulu, he sent her to a realm called Fouma where good is all that can be seen, heard, and said. Kwaniekwahulu found a man, and his name was Franchoire. He was the very most important of the most important. Purple and Tulip got married and gave birth to a son called Kling Klong. He was the creator of all mankind.

MYTH: In the beginning there was tapula her name meant Nothing.At that day she was pregnant her son came out her and his name was pululu. Pululu was lonely so tapula made a fox called Mona, they became best friends so mona made the earth with her happiness, but tapula did not like what she did so she killed mona. Pululu was very sad so he was crying like never ending and that how the rivers, lakes, sea, and the ocean came to be. Pululu was so sad he used mona’s heart to make the sun he used mona’s soft white fur to make the moon. After that he packed some rocks and and went to the sun to take some of the sun’s fire and mixed it with the rocks then he threw them far far away to space and that how the stars came to be because of his mom. Pululu was Furious at her mother but he couldn’t kill his only mother so he banned her far far away of his kingdom. Pululu was still sad about mona so he made the humans to represent mona and like she died All humans will die in their time.He was the goddess of life, but those humans were very annoying so he kill them all. After that He made new humans these ones were very selfish so he also killed them.

Then he made new humans but these ones were so strong and pululu was scared if they got control of him so he kill them. Finally these humans were smart they knew who their goddess was and they weren’t too strong so it was perfect and obviously they weren’t annoying at all. So pululu was very happy of his creation that he forgot all about mona’s death. Pululu then was in love with a human and the human too was in love. Her name was kula, he was so in love with her that he demanded them an immediate marriage. So they got marriage and he turned his wife into a goddess and she was was so happy she was the goddess of happiness. after that they got a baby and it was a girl and she was called kila. She was so cute but tapula came back and she was angry than anyone because of his son.Now she is going to kill kila but pululu didn’t want someone that he loves die again for his mother so he kill her before she could kill kila, but he felt sad about doing that but their was nothing else to do.

TITLE: ~The Moon and The Stars~

MYTH: In the beginning there was nothing, nothing but dark skies and ashes on the ground in that darkness there was a goddess called Luna, and her people. She was a rude and greedy goddess, she was not like any other god or goddess the community had had before, but even with her nastiness, the community tried their hardest to be nice to her, except for one day... Luna was outside and then she heard a group of people screaming! Luna got closer to hear what they were saying. When she did she heard complaints. Complaints about her. Luna was furious for how they disrespected her. People were always so nice to Luna, why were they so mean to her now? People were saying how Luna never made anything for their community! But that was the first and last time people would ever talk about her.

Later that day she called a “celebration” for her community. Everyone thought that their words finally got to her, inspired her to make something new. When everyone got to the celebration Luna started talking. But it was the words that she said that shocked every single person. Luna said that there will be a sacrifice every day due to the disrespect she got. A cold wisp of air blew right past everyone. No one was expecting what they heard they were scared they were terrified. Night fell. The sky was dark as always. The silence was in the air. No one could say a word. Luna said the first sacrifice would be in the morning.

Morning approached. No one was outside. Luna was aggravated for how no one listened to her. After Luna waited and waited she was tired so she ran and she went inside of someone's hut. No one was there. Luna ran around the whole community but the only thing was emptiness, silence, and loneliness. Luna’s emotions balled up inside of her. She didn’t know if she was mad or sad. Luna waited for hours to see if anyone was there. But not a single soul in sight. It was official Luna was alone. As night approached Luna noticed tiny sparkling specks in the sky. There were so many, they were everywhere, they were beautiful. Luna didn’t know what to say. What happened? Where were her people? And what are those tiny specks in the sky. Later that day she realized her people were up there because they didn’t want to be with Luna. Luna was saddened by that, she didn’t know her actions would make people do that. So she wanted to change her ways, so she went to the sky and became the moon! When she saw how high she was she realized how ugly the world was. She then started using her magic to create beautiful things. Flowers, color, and people! Luna now knew the power of being nice, and she has been creating things since that very day. And that is why the moon and stars are over our heads. They watch over us.

TITLE: The Planets

MYTH: Many years ago there was a being called Exactamus. He was extremely smart and was always exactly right no mater what. He was the only being in the whole universe back then but he decided since he was always right why does he not calculate if he could make other beings. So he did and the results said he could not so he decided not to try. Then in the middle of the night he saw a ray of light so he woke up. When he looked at the ray of light he saw it was another being so he flew over to her. Lamuni was the goddess of light. So she asked Exactamus what he was the god of. He said “Wisdom” and then he asked “and you”. She said “light”. So years passed by and they lived together.

One morning when they were eating breakfast she said “what about the other”. Exactamus said “what do you mean” and as he said that another being came in he was named Scanladal and he was the god of war. He wanted Lumani's hand in marriage but she refused because she loved Exactamus and Exactamus loved her as well but he was to shy to say it. So Scanladal tried to kill Exactamus but Exactamus killed Scanladal with one hit. So Exactamus and Lamuni got married and had a child named Spedler and he was the God of speed and he could do anything in a few seconds. So with him knowing that he ran his fastest and a portal appeared. So he ran through it and what did he find. Thats right he found a empty space filled with darkness. He told his parents and they said “why don't you make it yours” and he did easily because there were no other beings. But when he went back to the empty space he saw it was not just him anymore. So he ran in this empty space for years with no end looking for something. He did not know what so he decided going back to his parents was the best thing to do. So he did his best but it did not work. The portal was not opening. So years passed and a being came out of nowhere and she was the goddess of space and her name was Lasanize and they fell in love and had 10 children and their names were Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn ,Uranus, Neptune, Pluto & Light or as his brother called him Sun. They were all either HOT or COLD but one of them was perfect not WARM nor COLD he was plain perfect. But his brothers picked on him.

But one day everything started moving on him and they all saw him being perfect caused life to sprout on him. So his mom shined her power upon him and everything started growing. One morning when earth woke up he saw these little people walking around him and from that point on Earth was the only one that had life upon him. But for his parents they became the sky and protected their children forever and that is how the solar system came to be, but nobody knows about the others.
