Comparing Manitou And The Hawaiian Creation Myth

Satisfactory Essays
There were plenty of differences in each myth. The Greek myth was filled to the brim with gods and goddesses whose lives intertwined with one another. It was also packed with different versions of myths including the world being created by a woman, serpent, and cosmic egg. In the Hawaiian creation myth, it seems that the Earth was already there when Kumulipo and Po’ele started creating plants and animals. This myth does not go into detail about how the Earth was created. Finally, in the Ute myth Manitou lived in the sky with nothing around but the sun and clouds suggesting He-She created the world. He-She created the world from a hole unlike female-serpent relationship in the Greek myth that suggests some form conception.
