While Turtle Iceland may seem like a distant ocean isle, it is what some Indians call the North America continents, while others, like the Ojibwa, use it to relate to the whole wide globe. So what is Turtle Iceland? Turtle Iceland comes from the First Nations Folk.
According to the storytellers, the history is different, but they usually agreed that the tortoise is part of the history of origin (a tale about how everything came into being). A number of nations believe that the Creator of all things inundated the earth because men could not get along with each other and fought.
The only survivors in one of the versions were the beasts and Nanabush (or Nanabozho), a ghost that can be found in many Ojibwa (let's say "oh-JIB-wah") myth. Where was Turtle Island born? Here is how a history of creating, in an Ojibwa style is made:) As the Creator inundated the earth, Nanabush was abandoned suspended with the beasts.
It had the astonishing thought of plunging to the bottom of the ocean and bringing back some soil to build new lands. It was Nanabush who kept dipping into the ocean, but no matter how much he tried, he couldn't get to the bottom. As he became too weary, some of the creatures used to jump into the mud.
He was trying to get to the bottom, but the sea was too shallow. As he was too sleepy, the tortoise tried. She came forward and volunteered to try. However, the muskrat took a good long breather and dived into the sea. and Nanabush were waiting. They' re looking in the waters for the muskrat.
However, the Muskrat did not appear. It was a long wait and they had given up when they saw the muskrat at last! The muskrats realized when the rat passed away that he had clutched the soil he had taken from the waters. And the tortoise said if the muskrat was willing to give his own body, he could give them his shell.
You could put the soil that the muskrat had taken to them on his back and he would wear it for them. Wind was blowing and spreading the land. The little piece of land the muskrat had bought became Turtles Island. Lots of folk tales all over the globe show a tortoise?
