"According to a well-known Hopi creation myth, the human race originated under the ground, and finally came up to the surface through a long vertical shaft. Creation is like the ascent of a shoot generated by a planted seed (the Hopi developed as an agricultural people), or the journey of a newborn child through the birth canal."
