      There is a nice little video called "Dream Tales" which has some
      illustrated Yaqui origin myths.
      Popul Voh springs to mind, as well. There are other, Oceanic origin myths
      which I 'm sure would be interesting.
      The Nuer/Dinka east african origin stories are quite good, as well - very
      entertaining. I can't recall the author, but there are beast tales and other
      folklore of the Nuer available, in old copies, of course.
      There is also a possible interesting final couple of weeks for your class,
      as the Origin stories which also feature end of the world scenarios as well.
      Norse Gods, Aztec/ Mesoamerican, Abrahamic, etc.
