Inyan

Inyan

In Lakota mythology, Inyan (Rock) was the first of the superior Gods. He existed before the beginning. He then created Maka and gave it the spirit Maka-akan (Earth Goddess), the second of the superior Gods and a part of Inyan. Creating Maka required all of Inyan's blood, which was blue, to form a great disk, beyond which there was nothing. This effort made Inyan hard and powerless. His blood became the blue waters and the sky, and Nagi Tanka (Sky God), the Great Spirit who is all powerful and called Skan (Most Holy), the third superior God.
