WONOMI

Maidu Creator God

Creator God

He was happily creating the Universe and naming all the bits and bobs when that darned Coyote came along and caused utter confusion by re-naming everything. This gave that sneaky trickster the power of control.

Legend also tells that Wonomi created the first humans but rapidly became bored with them. Death and sickness were invented to make things a bit more interesting.
