The next day the men left in their canoes as three tribes united ready to take on the rules of the great law of peace. Hadoda-he-ha sang traditional Cayuga songs and told the traditional legends of the Cayuga ways of life. One legend was:
“In the beginning, there was an island floating in the sky that was lit by a glowing tree. Sky Woman lived there. One day, Sky Woman found out that she was bearing twins. She told her husband and he flew into a rage. He grew so angry that he tore the glowing tree out of the ground, leaving a hole. Sky Woman looked through the hole, amazed by the partially created world below. Then her husband pushed her through the hole and she tumbled toward the Earth. But two birds, fascinated by Sky Woman, caught her on their wings and brought her to the sea animals (that was all there was at the time). The animals took pity on her and started diving to the Ocean floor for mud, but none of them could make it. Eventually, Little Toad tried and came up with a mouth full of mud. The animals sprinkled it on Big Turtle's back, and the mud grew and grew until it was North America. Sky Woman stepped onto the land and started creating things. First, she created stars, then she created the sun and the moon. After that she gave birth to her twin sons; Sapling the Good Spirit, and Flint the Bad Spirit. The two spirits went on creating things, and a great rivalry was formed. If one made something, the other would try to destroy it or change it somehow. But Flint had to be stopped, he was causing to much trouble. So Sapling and Sky Mother captured him and forced him to live on Big Turtle's back (because he can not die), his anger is sometimes felt as volcanoes.
