Boshongo Bantu Creation Myth
In the beginning, Bumba was all alone in the water. He got sick and vomited up the sun, moon, stars, and land. He vomited up nine animals: a leopard, an eagle, a crocodile, a fish, a tortoise, lightning, a white heron, a scarab and a goat. The last thing that he vomited was mankind. The animals and Bumba’s three sons then created plants and the rest of the animals.
