This movie presents the Seneca tale, “The Creation of Earth,” retold by Joseph Bruchac (Abenaki) and set against a still starscape. The story is intentionally not accompanied by pictures to allow children to create their own images and use their own imaginations to experience the mysteries of our universe. Excerpted from the "Solar System" chapter of SkyTellers with permission from Lynn Moroney and Joseph Bruchac.  The transcript is available to view here.
