"Without the tree, there can be no life. I must follow it."
Earth was covered in water and above was Sky Land. All the people in Sky Land came to the Great Sky Tree in order to eat.
The old chief had told Aataentsic a dream about how the fruit on the very top of the great tree would cure him of the sickness. So she grabbed an ax and went to the great tree.
When Aataentsic accidentally cut down the tree, the tree fell through the hole that it had made. She returned to her husband, but she then decided to follow the tree.
Turtle saw Aataentsic falling so she took action. She told all the water animals to bring wet soil and put it on the Turtle's back.
The water animals kept bringing up the soil until they made a big island. Then Aataentsic settled down gently on the new Earth. The pieces from the great tree also fell and rooted beside her.
The moral of this story teaches that people make sacrifices for the ones they love. It also tells how Earth was created by animals.
