The Native American Iroquois Creation Mythology tell of The God Hahgwehdiyu. He is associated with ''Goodness and Light'' – and was in contrast to His Brother, who was ''Darkness and Evil''. The Iroquois believed both were needed to ''balance The Universe. But when Hahwwediyu's Mother (The Sky Woman) was killed by His Evil Brother, He used Her body to create The Earth. She was also used to create Maize (Corn), which was the life staple of The Tribe.
