Ethiopian Creation Myth - African Safari Campfire Stories
Wak was the creator god who lived in the clouds.
He kept the vault of the heavens at a distance from the earth and covered it with stars.
He was a benefactor and did not punish.
When the earth was flat Wak asked man to make his own coffin, and when man did this, Wak shut him up in it and pushed it into the ground.
For seven years he made fire rain down and the mountains were formed.
Then Wak unearthed the coffin and man sprang forth, alive.
Man tired of living alone, so Wak took some of his blood, and after four days, the blood became a woman whom the man married.
They had 30 children, but the man was ashamed of having so many so he hid 15 of them.
Wak then made those hidden children into animals and demons.
