in the beginning the world we live in today did not exist. it belonged to the first animals and humans of the world, and of the magician nanabush. to see nanabush you would have thought of him a normal man, unless you saw him doing his wonders to the world.
nanabush and his younger brother lived together by the shore of the lake. for company the two brothers played and talked with the animals. they were freindly to all, all except the dangerous serpent people, who lived beneath the water and tried to kill friendly animals who were nanabush's friends. it's because one of those fights that nanabush created the world
it's a serpent person!
one winter day nanabush's brother went out hunting alone. the next day he didn't come back and worried nanabush. nanabush had told his younger brother not to go on the frozen lake because the serpent people would try to drown him. nanabush searched everywhere but could not find his brother. now hw was certain that the serpent people took his brother.
it had to be the serpent people
one day nanabush heard a loud booming noiz and went to investigate. when he reached the top of the hill he saw two serpent people. anger and rage filled his heart he grabbed his bow and arrow and struck the two serpent people in the hearts. they escaped into the water and tried to drown nanabush, but he escaped.
nanabush was smart this time he built a raft so that when the serpent people tried to drown him he would go there. he went to search or the serpent peoples home. along the way he saw an old lady. they talked and he during that conversation he found out she was one of the serpent people and he killed her and used her skin. now he looked like that women and she told him where they lived. when he got there he saw his younger brother dead in a corner, he also saw the two serpent people he had hit with his arrows he jumped over and pushed the arrows into their hearts further and they died.
now that i look like this women i will sneak into the serpent peoples house.
the serpent people tried to drown the entire world this time. nanabush started yelling to all the living cretures he saw to get on his raft. after that catastrophe was over the whole world was covered with water. with the help of the animals nanabush was able to get some of the old earth from under all the water. when that happened nanabush used magic to create a new earth to live on with all the creatures he was able to rescue.
