Iaci - The Mother of the Moon

  • Iaci - The Mother of the Moon

    Myth of the Creation of Night - According to this legend of the Tupy-Guaranis Indians, in the villages of the whole world, it was always day, and the Indians never stopped hunting, and women to clean and cook. The sun went from east to west and then went the opposite way, from west to east, always without ever disappearing. One day, however, when Tupan had gone out to hunt, a man touched the fragile Sun to know how it works, and the Sun broke into a thousand pieces. From then on, darkness reigned in the villages. Tupan, then, nonconformist, recreated the Sun, but this did not return again from the west to the East, so Tupã created the Moon and the stars to light the night.
