Juok, the Creator

Juok created all men from the earth. In the lands of the whit men he made them of sand or clay. In Egypt he formed them out of Nile mud, so they were brown. From the black earth of Shilluk he made black men.

Juok decided to give men two legs like flamingoes, so they could walk and run. He made him two arms so he could till the soil, one arm to hole with and the other to pick up seeds. He gave man two eyes that he might see, a mouth so he might eat what he had grown, and lastly he made him a tongue so he could speak, shout and sing, and two ears that he might hear. (Shilluk myth, Sudan) A.G.H.
