The Native spirit
The folklore of North America’s indigenous peoples still resonates deeply in our cultural narrative. Illustrated with 180 photographs and artworks, Native American Myths & Legends is a wide-ranging look at mythology among the Apache, Blackfoot, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Inuit, Sioux, and many other tribes.
Arranged by region and tribe, the book features creation myths and heroic journeys featuring benign harvest spirits, fearsome sea beasts, and such famous figures as the mighty Thunderbird. Here, too, are such key rituals, concepts, and symbols as sweat lodge ceremonies, totem poles, and the idea of the upper world and an underworld.
Native American Myths & Legends is an engrossing tour through our most elemental spiritual origins.
