|There was a place called “Skyland.” In Skyland there was a tree called the Tree of Life. One day a strong wind uprooted the tree and opened a big hole into another world. The chief’s wife fell through it and birds caught her. They carried her down and she ended up on a turtle. The dirt from the uprooted tree kept falling down on the turtle and gradually made land in there. That is how the Earth was created.
