The story of the turtles

The turtle has a powerful spiritual symbol worth worldwide in a number of traditions and cultures. From the Indians to the Japanese, there are innumerable creation legends that show the turtle as a key character. In some Native American stories, the turtle is the deity of the world’s coasts. Tradition has the animal brought mud from the bottom of the vast global ocean and used it to form continents.

This concept is not unique; in fact, many African and ancient Greek traditions are filled with tales of the turtle. On average, turtles live to be 150 years old, which is why they are revered as symbols of health and longevity.
