The Creation Myth
The Sipmach creation myth holds that Luuda, God of Water, created the world by dragging Haama, Goddess of Earth, out of the ocean with a fishing net. Haama then created the rest of the world out of clay. Haama and Luuda had six children together and gave each child an element to rule over, completing The Pantheon. All eight gods worked together to create the first humans, with each god creating a body part. When the first seven parts were put together, they did not work. Miiran, Goddess of Light, breathed a soul (yæn) into the human and it came alive.
The creation myth is a popular topic in tapestries, and a version of it can be found in most households. Like all myths, it is not generally believed to be the literal truth.
