Left with the thankless task of creating the universe, he roped in Spider Woman KOYANGWUTI and a couple of handy twins. They were all kept busy making the world, the sea, the stars and the air, while TAIOWA sat on his lazy behind with his feet up.
Finally the world was complete, with beautiful forests, mountains, rivers and clouds. KOYANGWUTI added the finishing touch: animals, fish, birds and people. A magnificent effort! What a shame that mankind behaved so badly. The whole world had to be destroyed.
SOTUKNANG’s team sighed and tried the whole thing again. Working a little less enthusiastically than before, they made mountains, rivers, plants, clouds, animals?
Finally mankind was placed on this not-quite-so-magnificent Earth. Guess what? Widespread disobedience again. There was nothing for it but a great flood and attempt number three.
Earth. Mountains. Sky. Plants. Animals. Mankind. Disobedience. SOTUKNANG was now a little miffed. No wonder TAIOWA had passed the buck. He flooded the world and got ready to try all over again.
Finally, on the fourth attempt, mankind behaved himself. Sighs of relief all round. But SOTUKNANG is keeping a very careful eye on us?
