Íŋyaŋ Was In The Beginning

Published September 6, 2019 by tindertender

Íŋyaŋ began Creation by draining its blood to create. The first Creation was Makȟá, the Earth. After Makȟá, another need arose and Íŋyaŋ drained its blood to address that need for Makȟá. As this process continued, Íŋyaŋ grew weaker and weaker as its energy continued to flow into each Creation. In our Creation story, the last Creation was the Human Nation. Woman was created first to replicate Makȟá, the giver of life and nourishment. Man was then created to be like the Universe, to provide nourishment and protection. The power of the Universe combines with Earth’s power to create life. Similarly, together man and woman create life.

Once Creation was complete, Íŋyaŋ was dry and brittle and scattered all over the world. Today we use the Íŋyaŋ Oyáte, the Stone People, in our iŋípi ceremony (purification ceremony). When the stones are brought in, we address them as Tȟuŋkáŋ Oyáte (“the oldest Creation Nation”). This reminds us that the stones were in the beginning as Íŋyaŋ.
