Storyboard Text

  • Here is the story of the beginning, Here is the sky, all alone. Here is the sea, all alone. Only Heart-of-Sky, alone. But there is no one to speak his names. There is no one to praise his glory.
  • And so Heart-of-Sky thinks, Who is there to praise me? Heart-of-Sky only says the word, "Earth," He thinks of mountains, and great mountains come. He thinks of trees,and trees grow on the land.Now Heart-of-Sky plans the creatures of the forest -birds, deer, jaguars and snakes.
  • Now Heart-of-Sky plans the creatures of the forest -birds, deer, jaguars and snakes. And each is given his home. They do not speak like humans. They do not praise Heart-of-Sky.And so the animals are humbled. They will serve those who will worship Heart-of-Sky.
  • And Heart-of-Sky tries again.Here is the new creation,made of mud and earth.It doesn't look very good.It only speaks nonsense.So Heart-of-Sky lets it dissolved away.
  • Now Heart-of-Sky plans again."Determine if we should carve people from wood," commands Heart-of-Sky."And as the words are spoken, it is done. The doll-people are madewith faces carved from wood.
  • They have nothing in their minds. They have no respect for Heart-of-Sky."This is not what I had in mind,"And so it is decided to destroy these wooden people.Hurricane makes a great rain. "You have abused us so now we shall eat you!""We will burn you and pound on you just as you have done to us!"The wooden people scatter into the forest. Their faces are crushed,and they are turned into monkeys.And this is why monkeys look like humans. They are what is left of what came before, an experiment in human design.
