Native American Made

The turtle is a special animal to the Native American people. According to the Native American people the world started with a great flood. Various animals volunteered to dive down into the bottom of the water to bring some of the earth up to make the world. Few tried and failed then, one animal succeeded with getting some of the earth and brought it up to shore, there was no where to put it. The problem was solved when the turtle swam to shore and said "Place the earth on my back." This is why North America is known as Turtle Island.
