In Issue 34 of the Baba Indaba Children's Stories, Baba Indaba narrates the Maya version of the creation story which starts with the high god Hurakan, the mighty wind, who passed over the universe which was still wrapped in gloom. He called out "Earth", and the solid land appeared thus starting the creation of the world. After the fish, animals and birds of the air were created, he created mannikins, and then the problems started. You're invited to download and read this story to find out if the Mayan creation went as well Hurakan hoped.

Baba Indaba is a fictitious Zulu storyteller who narrates children's stories from around the world. Baba Indaba translates as "Father of Stories".

Each issue also has a "WHERE IN THE WORLD - LOOK IT UP" section, where young readers are challenged to look up a place on a map somewhere in the world. The place, town or city is relevant to the story.
