What are some of the Native American Indians' creation beliefs ?


According to the creation stories passed down through the generations, several of the Native American Indian tribes believe their ancestors originally emerged from the interior of the earth :

  • The Navajos believe that they emerged at a place known only to them in the Navajo Mountains.

  • The Aztecs feel that they were one of seven tribes that came out of the caverns of Aztlan.

  • The Zuni believe that, "in the old days all men lived in caves in the center of the earth".

  • The elders of the Hopi people believe that an entrance in the Grand Canyon exists which leads to the underworld.

  • And there is a tale about a tunnel in the San Carlos Apache Indian Reservation in Arizona which is said to lead inside the earth to a land inhabited by a mysterious tribe.

  • According to the Pawnee story of creation "All living things came from under the ground".

  • Chekilli, the head chief of the Creeks Indian tribes said "The earth opened in the west, where it's mouth is. The earth opened and the Creeks came out".

    Ancient ancestors emerging from subterranean lands seems to be a common theme among the Native American tribes.
    Did some of these early Americans actually come from under the ground we walk upon ?

    It wasn't just the Native Americans who believed they originally came from a region under our earth:

  • Ancient Egyptians had their invisible Underworld of the Dead, which was ruled over by Osiris.

  • The Greeks had a dark Underworld of the Dead ruled over by Hades.

  • The Norsemen, Teutons and Vikings had their Underworld, a place called Nilfheim - a cheerless world of ice and darkness that was their Land of the Dead.

  • The Mayan underworld contained several deadly places, such as "The House of Gloom", "The House of Cold", "The House of the Jaguars" and "The House of Fire".

  • According to Inca legends the first of the Inca race were four brothers and four sisters who were said to have emerged from a cavern close to Cusco in Peru.

    There is a dwelling which the gods created for the first human beings, a dwelling in which they became great and increased in numbers, and the location of which is described in words exactly corresponding to those of Iranian, Indian, Chinese, Eddaic and Aztecan literature; namely, "in the center of the earth." --from the book 'Records of the Past', translation by Sayce
