NATIVE AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of North America...

QUAOAR

Native American Creator God

Also known as 2002-LM60

All-singing, all-dancing Creator God of the Tongva

In the beginning was chaos. Then along came QUAOAR with a spring in his step and a song in his heart. He danced and whirled and sang the Song of Creation, and thus the Universe began.

First to be created was WEYWOT, God of the Sky. He joined in the dance routine and helped to create CHEHOOIT, Goddess of the Earth.

With complicated three-part harmonies now possible, the song grew ever more creative — so TAMIT the Sun and MOAR the Moon soon popped into existence.

For a grand finale, the quintet sang into being plants, animals, people, stars, paperclips, clouds, agoraphobia, comets and everything else that exists. Not forgetting further deities MANISAR, MANIT, PAMIT, TOLMALOK and TUKUPAR-ITAR. And the audience roared.

His work done, QUAOAR settled back for a well-earned rest. They don’t write songs like that anymore.
