Ethiopians have many myths and legends. Some of these include the following:
The Queen of Sheba and Her Only Son Menyelek (I)
The Creation Myth
In this myth, the creator god, Wak shuts a man in a coffin on flat Earth, and then made fire rain down. This formed mountains. Then he unearthed the man, and he was alive. Soon, the man became lonely so Wak took some of his blood and made a woman for the man to marry. They had 30 children, but the man was ashamed to have so many, so he hid 15. Wak then turned those children into animals and demons.
