STORY OF CASA NYUMBA…
In the beginning Mawu, with her husband Lisa, created the universe. The
first sound made by the universe was music. Mawu-Lisa delighted in the
sound and gleefully danced across the earth forming the mountains and
valleys, springs and volcanoes, forests, deserts, rivers, oceans and caves.
One day Mawu-Lisa’s three children went to play on earth and out of its
soil and water they formed animals, and man and woman to inhabit the
earth. Man and woman enjoyed life on earth and found shelter within the
forests and caves, drank from the rivers and were fed by the animals
Mawu-Lisa’s children created.
Gu, the youngest of the three children, was often concerned about man
and woman’s wellbeing on earth and would assist with mending cracks in
earth and leaks in the ocean that time would wear upon them. As Gu aged
and could no longer tend to man and woman as he used to, he decided to
create Casa Nyumba so that man and woman would always be cared for
and be able to create homes that would allow them to live prosperously
