|Weekend Writing Warriors|
It's #8sunday again. If you're interested in joining, check out the rules here.
When I left off last week, Taijala, the ruler of air and Guardian of the Spirit, had shared the workings of the Spiritworld with the people that Sahlaana had created.
The next part of the creation myth is the bear story that I shared on Feb.10th wherein Taijala mated with a mysterious bear that appeared as if from nowhere on the beach of Dakina.
This is what happens after the bear has continued on his way:
Taijala gave birth to an entire generation of people, the New People.
The New People were different; they had a magic all their own, the magic of the beasts inherited from their father, the bear.
The gods were angry with Taijala and afraid of this new magic.
Sahlanna's children fought.
Tiga, ruler of earth and Guardian of the Body, stomped his foot and broke Dakina into four separate islands.
Tana, ruler of fire and Guardian of the Heart, took the island and its people in the east.
Tiga stayed on the largest land mass in the centre, and he broke off the southern region where Sahlaana and Taijala were and kicked it far out into the Endless Sea.
