Quick Reference

Africa

According to the Abaluyia tribesmen of Kenya, the first human couple, Mwambu and Sela, lived in a house on stilts. They were always careful to pull up their ladder because there were amanani, ‘monsters’, prowling about on the earth. The house, a miniature version of the heavenly abode that the creator god Wele had made for himself, remained the home of Mwambu and Sela, but their children descended to the ground and began the colonization of the earth.
