The Sky daughter was sent to the earth to give it life. As she fell the animals of the water tried to gather earth for her to land. Only the turtle succeeded. Daughter of the Sky died giving birth to twin sons, one bad, the other good. They cut off her head and placed it in the sky, and buried her body. Her body fed the corn planted in the earth on the back of the turtle, where a great tree and springs also sprout forth.

Thank you, Amy. I need to get back to doing more of the stories sometime. Was researching these because one of my father's great grandmothers was of the Cayuga Iroquois and I wanted to make sure my sons knew as much as they could about the tribe. She was found with parents who had somehow died and was taken in by a family who raised her as their own. At that time, orphans were often treated badly, and Native Americans were treated even worse. By some miracle they raised her as their "true daughter," making sure she was educated and not relegating her to a life of household servitude. It's not known if her husband was an Iroquois or not. They lived on land that required you to be Iroquois to own it somewhere near Cayuga, New York. My aunt, who passed away years ago, once hired a genealogist to trace records and documents but the trail was pretty cold by then for such "unimportant" people so little was found. From her, I inherited an over-sensitivity to alcohol and skin that doesn't burn but turns the red-brown color of acorns if I am in the sun for a few days.

The Iroquois story of creation - a companion piece for "How the Trees Get Their Colors" Many Iroquois stories are very bloody. Which seems strange for a matrilineal society.
