Storyboard Text

  • I never knew I was THIS hot!
  • Now I can fish, yay!
  • Beautiful!
  • The Mother wandered deep into a cave, spreading her light around her. The heat surrounding her melted the ice, creating all the rivers and streams in the world.
  • FINALLY!
  • You did even better than I thought you would! Please enjoy your complimentary vacation to the Sun!
  • Can I sleep there?
  • Uhh...yes?
  • Then she created aquatic creatures including fish, and reptilian animals such as snakes, lizards, and frogs.
  • Take care of this great land, everyone.
  • Next, she awoke the spirits of the birds and animals. Both the animals and the birds proceeded to burst into the sunshine in a majestic collage of colours.
  • After realizing all that she had done, the Father of All Spirits was proud of the Sun Mother's work.
  • Once the Sun Mother had received the Father's nod of approval, she instructed all her creatures to live peacefully and respectfully to the Earth & with one another.
  • Lastly, she rose into the sky & became the Sun. That's the Aboriginal Creation Story of The Earth and the Sun Mother.
