Sky Woman, by Ishanti Gumbs

In the sky there was an island, on the island there were sky people.

Sky, clouds, rain, water, ocean, sea animals; turtles & the birds fly high

Sky, clouds, island people

Sky, sun, trees, flowers, sweet smell

Sky, sun, flowers die, trees fall

Sky, moon, a woman falls 

Sky, moon, birds flies high and take the woman out of the sky

“Turtle’s back becomes sky woman’s home”

Mother of Haudenosaunee
