Every culture, every people since always have had passed down knowledge of how life began, which we now perceive as myths, stories and legends. In the way of the Twisted Hairs, it is written in the records of the sacred kiva…
In the beginning, since always, the Everything was created from within the void, in which there was a present a pure energy force called Chuluaqui.
This Chuluaqui energy expresses itself as pure orgastic, harmonic, and balancing vibration. In essence, it is the spark of life that allows all things within the Everything to take on their particular substance form.
As Wakan Tanka (the Great Spirit and also called the Everything) discovered its female being. It breathed and inhaled with implosive force. This creative-receptive force became the egg of all creation known as WahKahn, the universe, our Great Grandmother.
Then, Wakan Tanka exhaled and in so doing discovered its male side, the active conceptive force: SsKwan, the galaxy our sacred Great Grandfather.

Therefore, the first of the four sacred elements was AIR, the breath of Wakan Tanka.
The second element was FIRE, the spirit of the Chuluaqui force of Wakan Tanka.
Then from the space of its female and male side, Wahkahn and SsKwan came together with the energy force of their separate Chuluaqui energies combining in a whirlwind serpent fire of total love, and the third element of WATER was created.
The two Chuluaqui energies became Quodoushka, the sacred marriage and union of the male and female energies, which together became greater than the sum of the parts, and thus became the heart of Wakan Tanka.
Then seeing that the purpose of creation was discovering substance form through the act of orgastic pleasure to gain knowledge of itself, Wakan Tanka (WahKahn and SsKwan) made love and created all things within the Everything.
Thus the fourth element of EARTH became the physical manifestations of the love energy of the Great Spirit.
This is the story of how the Everything was birthed through the elemental connections.
