CONCOW MAIDU CULTURE VIDEO BY WHOLLEM
ANOTHER ANCIENT STORY OF CREATON SET AT THE OCEAN FLOOR
Interestingly enough, in the Gnostic Gospels found at Nat Hammadi in Egypt
there is an account of Genesis wherein the Garden of Eden is at the bottom
of the sea. The story relates that Adam was created as a reflection on the
water. Here we have the oceanic element, but Adam is a mental creation,
rather than a physical creation from clay or mud.
Thus the Maidu Creation Story has various parallels in different parts of the
world. Some story elements are similar. But the Maidu story is unique. . . and
quite different from other legends found among tribal groups in early California.
