Commanche Creation Story
"One day the Great Spirit collected swirls of dust from the four directions
in order to create the Commanche people. These people formed from the earth
had the strength of mighty storms. Unfortunately, a shape-shifting demon
was also created and began to torment the people. The Great Spirit cast the
demon into a bottomless pit. To seek revenge the demon took refuge in the
fangs and stingers of poisonous creatures and continues to harm people
every chance it gets."
