MAHEO

Cheyenne Creator God

Creator God

Another who existed before existence and had the whole wide world in his hands.

He started with a beakful of mud from a coot. So of course he made the rest of the birds first, then some sea and eventually a turtle to rest the world on. It is all quite plain to the Cheyenne as they are Great Plain Indians.
