"Awehai is the Iroquois Goddess of the Sky and the Earth. Before there were people on the earth, Awehai lived with her husband in the sky. Her husband thought that she had her sights on another man, and in a jealous rage, pulled up the tree at the center of the sky. This left a giant hole, and he threw Awehai to earth. She grabbed seeds and animals as she fell, and brought them with her. As she neared the waters below, birds flew up to catch her and help her to land safely"
