Sky Woman’s PowerNative American FolkloreUpon completion, add this sticker to your path on the map! Many native people call North America Turtle Island. Number each passage of the story in the correct sequence to learn why. But Sky Woman had a special power. If she had even a small bit of earth, she could make more earth. Enough for everyone to live on. Sky Woman placed the earth on a turtle’s back. Then she used her powers to make more and more land— until the tiny bit of earth grew into what is now called North America! One by one, each animal dove, but none of them reached the bottom. Finally, only the tiny muskrat was left. However, there was no earth to be found! So Sky Woman asked all the animals to dive to the bottom of the ocean and bring some earth back up to the surface. Once, a great flood covered the world. Sky Woman came down to Earth, but there was no place for her to rest—just miles and miles of water, all over. The muskrat was gone all day and all night. But in the morning, his furry whiskers broke the surface of the water, and after a deep breath, he offered his paw filled with a tiny bit of earth!Now add this sticker to your map! BONUS: How does Sky Woman remake the world?
