TIRAWA

Pawnee Creator God

Also known as Tirawa-Atius

Top God of Creating, Mating and Procreating

He put the Sun (Shakuru) and Moon (Pah) together to produce a son, and introduced the Evening Star and the Morning Star to produce a daughter. Soon everyone and everything was falling in love and consequently at it like rabbits. Thus was everything made.

All would’ve been bliss if Coyote hadn’t opened one of the weather sacks and let the storms of death loose.
