Storyboard Text

  • Ahh!  I'm falling!
  • According to the Huron myth, one day, a woman fell from the sky.  Two loons protected her from falling into the water.  They knew that they had to find land.
  • Animals dove to the bottom of the sea to find earth, which they placed on a giant tortoise.  Now the woman had land, and earth was created.
  • I'm the good twin, Tijus-keha!
  • I'm the bad twin, Tawis-karong!
  • The woman died during childbirth, after her evil son came out of her side.  She was buried.  From her head sprouted a pumpkin.  Corn grew from her torso, and bean poles grew from her feet.  This is how crops were formed.
  • Tijus-Keha created the good animals, such as the dove and the partridge.  Tawis-Karong made the dangerous animals, such as the mosquito and the snake.
  • Your bag of corn will  never kill me!
  • There was only room for one ruler, so the brothers battled until good triumphed.  Tawis-Karong died and went to the west, which is  why people go there now when they pass.
  • A deer horn in my eye!  I'm dying, bro!
