Once there was FIRE; the gods controlled and protected FIRE, only the humans wanted its warmth and light from the cold and dark during the night. A god Kaang warned that if the Humans used FIRE, the animals and trees would no longer talk to them. Hummingbird, Beaver, Grandma Spider, and the Monkeys secured FIRE. Then a human Hunter stole FIRE for his warmth and light and cooked animal flesh, which caused fear, havoc, and destruction of human harmony on Mother Earth.
FIRE is hypnotic, enchanting, and a furious eater to be controlled by the Humans with confinement. These stories are compiled from folktales and segued to tell the consequences once humans had FIRE.
