Chippewa Sky Man Circa 1700

According to Chippewa legend some Chippewa were walking over the plains when they saw someone sitting on the grass. It was a man. When they approached, he halted them by raising his hand. 'He said, I don't belong here. I dropped from the above.' They wished to take him home with them. He told them to go home and clean the place where he was to stay. Then he would return with them.

After they had done this, they came back for him. He was a nice-looking man, clean and shining bright. He stayed with them. 'Every day at sundown, he watched the sky. In a clear voice he said, something will come down, I will go up.' He said he had been running in the sky. There was an open place; he couldn't stop running, so he dropped through. One day in the afternoon he said, 'Now it's coming.' Everyone looked up but they could see nothing for a long time. The man who had kept the 'Sky mans at his home could see better than the others. He saw a brilliant star shining way up in the sky.

The other Indians didn't see it until it came near the ground. They had never seen anything nicer in the world. Two men got a hold of it and pulled it down. The 'sky-man' got into it. Then it rose and he was gone. They had tried to get him to stay but he said that he must go. See: Chippewa Sky Man

"Among all things that can be contemplated under the concavity of the heavens, nothing is seen that arouses the human spirit more, that ravishes the senses more, that horrifies more, that provocates more terror or admiration than the monsters, prodigies and abominations through which we see the works of nature inverted, mutilated and truncated - The Signs of Man Pierre Boaistuan 1561
