  • The Yokut Indians believed that a great flood had covered the earth with water, and that there no living creatures on the land at the time.
  • Then one day, a eagle appeared in the sky with a crow riding on its back. They circled until they found a stump the birds could see fish which would occasionally leap from the water. The two decided to have a friendly competition to see which could catch the most fish.
  • 1:man why is water so wet
  • 2:its water,you cant be this dumb!
  • One day, while sitting on their stump, a duck approached. They watched as it dove deep in the water .Occasionally, the duck would surface with a bill full of mud. After a short time, the duck realized what the birds wanted and began to exchange mud for fish.

  • But that night, a tremendous storm rolled in. Crow and eagle dug holes in their mud piles and crawled in for shelter. It rained all night long, washing away a large portion of their new land. After the storm the sun dry hardened what was left of the mud.Each passing day saw the flood water receding more and more. Land became exposed, but the two birdshalves of the world were much taller than the previously flooded land.

  • Eagles land continued to grow larger while crow's was smaller in size. It remained that way, creating what is now California.The eagle's larger half of the world is now called the mighty "Sierra Nevada Mountains" on the eastern border of the state. The crow's half is known as the "California Coastal Mountain Range", which is smaller than the Sierra Nevada. Indians honor the eagle as a brave and strong creature because of his efforts,while the crow is considered to be of less stature
