A fundamental myth for the Masai peoples is Ngai, the creative deity of the world. In the beginning it was heaven or earth, it could be everywhere, so it had all the cattle. But one day the earth and the sky separated. Then Ngai lost his power on earth reigning only in the heavens. The cattle were thus left unprotected. He needed sustenance, so Ngai, agonizing, sent the Masai to care for their livestock with the roots of the sacred tree (wild fig), a task that defines the responsibility of the Masai as adults. The elements overlap, because not with the tree that actually feeds the cattle, but with the pastures.
The Masai recognize, in a mythical past, the existence of the Oldorobo or Torrobo. They are imaginary beings, who inhabited the world before the world. The Masai believe that these primal beings were also Masai (they do not refer to the human race) and that they lived in an earthly paradise (Parakwo). These Torrobo adopted the Masai language and joined them to bring them the rain, teach them the emotional rite (circumcision) and take care of the deceased.
