In the myths of the Zuni Indians of New Mexico, Awonawilona was the creator of the world, becoming the sun and making the 'mother-earth' and 'father-sky', from whom all living creatures came, born in four caves deep in the earth. The first man, Poshaiyankya, led the creatures up into the light. He also made the ocean, which was covered with green algae that hardened, split and became Awitelin Tsta and Apoyan Tachi.
