If Christianity teacher humans to have a relationship with the land as humans come from the land, the Aru people are just the opposite. The sea context that surrounds and makes life possible for them creates a reflection thet humans are actually created from the sea. The reflection is relfected through the myth of Eno Karang: a myth that rells about the beginning of their existence; their ancestors were created form the sea; the sea is the source of life for them; the sea ties their relationship; and the sea becomes a divine means that destroys but saves them. the myth of eno karang from Aru people is a myth that shows kinship between human and the sea. Myth is indeed an untrue imaginary story, but myth is a story taht underlies and gives meaning to life. Myth is one of the special revelations in contextualizing theology.
