English Version
Earth’s Creation
They say Our Mother Goddess created the gods to look after Earth’s bodies of water and to water the land.
She made them out of cotton and left them in a lagoon. But they grew tired of being there, so Our Mother took them to the zenith.
However, they grew tired of being suspended there and with the help of Tajá’a the Astro Brother, they used their arrows to extract cells from his body, and created the Earth.
With a lock of our Mother, they began to weave a Tsíikiri, or eye of God.
The goddess then put the Earth on top and ordered the gods to step on it and stretch it out while they danced the mitote. That’s how the world was created.
That is how we the Coras tell it.
