Myth Discussion

Both Nyoro Myth and the genre of myth called “destruction of humankind” myths, such as the story of Noah’s Ark (Links to an external site.), could be classified as “origin myths” … a story of a people and where they came from. Often there is information on identity, and role in the universe, and warnings, built into origin myths.

FIRST: compare and contrast Nyoro Myth and a destruction myth you are familiar with… what do they teach about the role of humanity, and what warnings are built in to the myths?
SECOND: can you think of another type of myth that fills these same role, and that you would like to share or point out for discussion?
