Storyboard Text

  • In the beginning, there was only the sky above and the waters below, and this was ruled by the mighty Orisham the council of gods. Olorun ruled the sky abouve and Olokun was master of all that was in the waters below.
  • Olorun
  • Olokun
  • One day, a god named Obatala decided to create dry land.
  • He asked permission from Olorun and advice from Orunmila, the wisest of the Orisha.
  • You will need a long gold chain, a snail's shell filled with sand, a white hen, a black cat, and a palm nut.
  • Obatala poured the sand from the shell into the mist below, and the released the hen. The hen landed on the sand and immediately started pecking and scratching, scattering the sand into all directions.
  • Once he had all of these items in a bag, Obatala hung the chain in the corner of the sky and began to climb down, down, down. He kept climbing down down down for a very long, long time...until he finally reached the bottom of the chain.
  • The sand soon became mountains and valleys. Obatala planted the palm nut...and soon stood an entire palm forest! Obatala was very pleased with his work. He names the land life and settles down with the cat to live in his new land.
