In the beginning all was water. In all directions the sky was clear and unobstructed. A cloud formed in the sky, grew lumpy, and turned into Coyote. Then a fog arose, grew lumpy, and became Silver-Fox. Then they thought.
"Do you go and lie down," said Silver-Fox to Coyote, and he did so. While he slept, Silver-Fox combed his hair, and the combings she saved.
Coyote woke, and looked up. After a time he said, "Where are we? What place is this that we have came to?"
And Silver-Fox replied, "I do not know. We are just here."
Still all the time she knew; but denied that she had made the world.
I stumbled upon this beautiful Achomawi (and other Californian tribes) legend about the world creation. There is not many native-American themed furry art and I got inspired!
