The Creation of the Amazon River

"A long, long time ago, Jaci, the silver Moon, happened to meet the golden Sun, while wandering by the Amazon forest. The sun was a strong, fiery warrior. As he set his eyes on Jaci, the Sun realized that he had never beheld anything so beautiful. They fell in love immediately and decided to wed.

Suddenly the Sun realized that their passion could never be consummated. It would mean the end of the world. The Sun's intense love would scorch all plants and burn all life on Earth. The tears of happiness shed by the Moon would flood the universe. Reluctantly they agreed to part and never meet each other again, for the good of all the world's creatures.

Jaci (jah-cee) the Moon, and Sun never did meet again. Whenever one comes by, the other immediately retreats.

But Jaci was so unhappy that she couldn't help but cry night and day. Her tears fell on the forest and filled the valleys. They rolled on down to the sea. In this way the Great River came to be."

This folktale was extracted from the book "Brazilian Folktales" by Livia de Almeida and Ana Portella, edited by Margaret Read MacDonald.
