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.
