Main article: Serer creation myth

The Ndut people who adhere to the tenets of Serer religion refer to the supreme god as Kopé Tiatie Cac
Kopé Tiatie Cac
in Cangin -Ndut. The name Kopé Tiatie Cac probably derived from the god Koox
Koox
(var : Kooh). Ndut cosmogony posits that, the first humans did not die. The human species were not meant to die following the initial creation . The dog was the first to die at that primordial time. Having witnessed the death of the animal, the Ndut people gave the animal a sacred burial at the foot of a baobab tree, and mourned its death. The women crying and wailing in sadness for the departed dog, attracted the attention of Kopé Tiatie Cac
Kopé Tiatie Cac
(or Koh) God of death. The god angered by the mourning women unleashed death to human kind in the following terms:

“ What! You make so much noise for a dead dog? Good! You die you too.
