    • According to asmat tradition:"Fumeripits was the first being to exist on earth, and he also created the first men's ceremonial house [called] a jeu."
  •  
    • "Fumeripits would spend his days dancing along the beach, but after awhile grew tired of being alone."
  •  
    • "So he chopped down a number of trees, carved them into human figures, and placed them inside the jeu."
  •  
    • "However since the sculptures were inanimate,Fumeripits was still unhappy.He then decided to create a drum, and chopped down another three, hollowed out the center, and stretched a piece of lizard skin over the top."
  •  
    • " As he began to play the drum, the human figures miraculously came to life, their elbows came unstuck from their knees, and they began to dance."
  •  
    • This is how Fumeripits made people from trees.And the first people were Asmat.
