Creation stories are as inherent a part of any culture's identity. The myths are as diverse as the tribes of this earth. Northwest coast native traditions tell of Raven pulling humans from a clam shell. Ancient peoples of the Mediterranean tell how God modeled man and woman from clay and breathed life into them. The Old Testament tale of Genesis still speaks to many contemporary Americans. Science may be the new myth maker as it disproves and sometimes confirms these stories passed down through generations. In this wheel I embrace the creation story of "The Big Bang", the common source of all beings and material in this universe which makes us brothers and sisters of the stars.
