Hus Brothers

North American - Buzzard-gods of the Wintun people. The creator-god, Olelbis, sent these two beings down to earth with orders to build a ladder from there to heaven but they dismantled what they had built when Sedit persuaded them that it was better if man were not given the right to go to heaven and return. It is said that one lived in the east, the other in the west and the sun travelled from one to the other every day. They were said to have created death. Sometimes called Hus Brothers.
