How they came to be
there is mud
In the beggining the animals were living in the sky but wondered what was in the water, since it was getting too crowded.
The water beetle checked and found mud so he told the others and they called the great buzzard to get it out of the water.
The great buzzard helped by tying it to four strings and carried it, but one day he got tired and fell, he fell in the cherokee land and when he fell, he left mountains and valleys. thats why cherokee live near mountains. i assume they believed the myth of adam and Eve.
Adam was created out of the dust of the ground and then god gave him life by breathing on it, then Eve was created by the ribs of the man. They lived in garden of Eden and were happy and the animals would never harm them and were nice.
The devil as a snake talks Eve into eating an apple from the tree of knowledge. She and Adam took a bite and were banished by God to live there since their only rule was not to eat anything from the tree of knowledge.
They had to kill animals and the animals would not be nice, instead the animals attack the people.
