Nyonia - Celestial Jewels
Samara Creation Story
Arrival of the Samara
Unlike other Easterlings the Samara claim they were brought to Nyonia by Tawa to save them from the destruction of the Fourth World. The people of the Fourth World were disobedient and lived contrary to Tawa’s plan. Tawa became angry with the people of the Fourth World. Tawa destroyed the Fourth World with fire.
Before the destruction, legends tell how the Samara people were gathered together by their medicine men and women.
Spider Grandmother then appeared and sealed the more righteous people into hollow reeds and placed the reeds onto a large web the Spider Grandmother created.
Then Tawa blew a great wind which carried the reeds and webs far away. The people traveled east until they eventually arrived on the great plains of Nyonia.
