This is a story from the Sioux.
The creator brought all of his creation around him and told them: “I have a very special gift for humankind which I must hide from them until they are ready.”
The Eagle said: “give it to me. I will take it to the moon; they will never reach it there”.
The Creator said “no, they will go there”. (and they did)
The Salmon said: “give it to me, I will take it to the bottom of the sea”.
“No”, said the creator, “they will find it there too.”
Then the Buffalo said “Give it to me. I will bury it in the middle of the great planes.”
“No”, said the creator, “one day they will cut into the very skin of Mother Earth and find it.”
Then the mole, who lives in the breast of the Great Mother, who sees nothing with its eyes but sees things with its spirit, said “Put it inside of them”.
“It is done”, said the Creator.
