Native American Mythology began long before the European settlers arrived on North American soil. Contrary to popular beliefs, there is more to Native American Folklore than stories of buffalo hunts, teepee living and animal stories. Hundreds of tribes throughout North American created a huge mythological system that has rivaled that of the Greeks.
The most popular of these myths usually are the ones dealing with Creation. These myths deal with both how the physical world as we know it came to be and how the many features of specific cultures originated. They cover areas of gods and man and why we were separated, where did the different races come from, and when did evil surface.
Being there were so many different tribes with countless beliefs and customs, the only way to understand these beliefs is through understanding the Native American stories. In this book I have endeavored to show a wide landscape of different tribes and hopefully present a true look at these beliefs. With this book I hope you understand the Native American people a little better and understand where they have come.
These stories have been handed down from generation to generation. And in such tradition, they are now handed down to you to share with the next generation.
The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Included you will find: Old-Man Remakes the World, Determination of the Seasons, Determination of Night and Day, Creation of First Man and First Woman, The Boy Who Became a God, Creation and Longevity, Onondaga Creation Myth, Pushing Up The Sky, Emerging Into The Upper World, Great Medicine Makes A Beautiful Country, The White Dawn Of Hopi, Children of the Sun, and many, many more.
