This story deals with a Creator god (Earthmaker) who was alone in space, with nothing around him. His first "creation" was his tears, which forms oceans, lakes, and streams.
His following creations (light, earth, plants, etc.) were all thought into existence. He then made man out of clay, and breathed life into man.
A partial excerpt follows:
In the beginning, Earthmaker sat in space and there was nothing around
him. He became conscious and realized there was nothing there. He
wondered what he should do, and he began to cry. Tears flowed from his
eyes and fell down below him. He looked down and saw something bright:
it was his tears which had fallen and formed the oceans, lakes, and
streams. Earthmaker thought some more. He realized that if he thought
of something, it would simply appear. He thought of light and it
became light. Then he wished for the earth, and the earth came into
existence. Earthmaker looked at the earth and thought it was fine, but
it was not quiet and steady: it moved like waves on the ocean. Then he
made the trees, but they did not make the earth steady. Then he made
grass and rocks and stones and they helped to steady and quiet the
earth, but it wasn't really steady yet. So then he made the four
directions and the four winds and he placed one at each corner of the
earth to hold it down and steady it. But still the earth was not quite
steady. He then made four large snake beings and threw them down to
the earth, and they fell through the earth to the place underneath.
Then the earth was steady and quiet.
The earth and the trees were all formed, but Earthmaker thought of
something else He took a piece of clay and shaped it so it looked just
like him. He talked to the small form, but it did not answer because
he had not given it a mind. He talked to it again, and again it did
not answer, and he realized that he had not given it a tongue. He made
a tongue for it but still it could not talk. He gave it a soul and
breathed into its mouth and it answered him.
