A celestial serpent from the beliefs of the Diegueno Indians of California. Long ago when the world was originally populated with gods and humans, they lived happily until a giant serpent entered into their world. The snake had come to Earth to inspect it out of interest. The gods were scared and so they advised the people to build a large wooden hut made from brushwood for the serpent to live in. When the serpent was fully within the hut, the people set fire to it. The creature exploded when burnt and it burst into many pieces that land across the Earth. Wherever these pieces fell, art, music, language, stories and knowledge of rituals naturally developed and spread.
