Quick Reference

(Poro, Sande/Liberia)

Nyesowa (Abi, Gala, Wala), God, created the world. When it is time for people to leave the earth, it is Nyesowa who calls them.

God said to his wife that they should make people. He took earth from his home and put it with hers. He sent trees down from heaven, and when his wife asked him why he was sending these things from heaven, he said that his children must not be able to find out their secrets since they would not be staying with him in the sky. Then he brought water down to the earth so that the children he was about to send there would have something to drink.
