No one died or got borned, but once a women felt as she was going to give birth to twins. So she told her husband so he went to a tree that gave light to the entire island so he teared the tree creating a huge hole. The woman looked inside the hole and all she saw was water that covered the earth. After that her husband pushed her through the hole so that she was falling toward the water. As soon as the animals saw the Sky woman falling they caught her on their back. To help the woman they dove into the water to gather mud but as all the animals tried they all failed. Finally, a little toad came out of the water with his mouth full with mud. The animals took the mud and spread it on the back of a big turtle the mud began to grow until it was the size of North America. The woman stepped onto the land and she created the stars, the moon, and the sun. She gave birth to twin sons she named one Sapling and the other Flint. Sapling created rivers that went two different ways and fish without bones. So Flint destroyed everything and made it his own way. Then Sapling and Flint decided to fight till Flint was beaten. Flint was god so he could not die but he was forced to live on the Big Turtle's back. Flint got angry and then a volcano formed. Iroquois Flag
