In the desert, water is precious. Waterbirds carried Earthmother down to the sea and set her on the back of a turtle, which became her home, with Turtlewoman. Earthmother filled the earth, watered by springs, with humans, animals, and plants, which humans must nurture and maintain. Humans are here, but shadows of the spirits are still here too, always watching.
