  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Mother, I have work for you. Go down to Earth and awake the sleeping spirits. Give them forms.
  • Rising Action
  • Everything was still and dark in the world, and all of the spirits were asleep. That is, all except for two. The Father of All Spirits was awake, and he gently woke the Sun Mother.
  • Climax
  • He said, "Mother, I have work for you. Go down to the Earth and awake the sleeping spirits. Give them forms."
  • Falling Action
  • When the Sun Mother drifted down onto the Earth, she began to walk. Everywhere she walked, plants of all kinds grew. She then went to all of the caves and awoke the spirits there using her bright, radiant light. Tons of insects and bugs flew out of the caves. Sun Mother ventured deeper into the caves, and melted the ice with the warmth of her heart, creating the lakes and rivers that we have today.
  • Resolution
  • All of the Earth's children lived peacefully with each other for a long time, but eventually they began to envy each other. The Sun Mother came down from the sky and gave them each the power to change their forms to whatever they choose.
  • The Sun Mother was not pleased with the choices that the animals made. One of the new animals even had a bill like a duck, a tail like a beaver's, and the ability to lay an egg. It was called a platypus.
  • So the Sun Mother created two more children, which were the Morning Star and the moon. They became our ancestors. She made them superior to all other animals because they had a part of her mind, and would never want to change their shape.
