Mother Of All Of The People

“The Mother Of All Of The People”
[Okanagon]

Old-One, or Chief, made the earth out of a woman, and she said she would be the mother of all of the people. Thus the earth was once a human being, and she is alive yet; but she has been transformed, and we cannot see her in the same way we can see a person. Nevertheless, she has legs, arms, head, heart, flesh, bones, and blood.
The soil is her flesh; the trees and vegetation are her hair; the rocks, her bones; and the wind is her breath.
She lies spread out, and we live on her. She shivers and contracts when cold, and expands and perspires when hot. When she moves, we have an earthquake. Old-One, after transforming her, took some of the flesh and rolled it into balls, as people do with mud or clay. These he transformed into the beings of the ancient world.
