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. Since the beginning of time every civilization has presented its own collection of strange tales and folklore. The Native American Indians are no different. Many of their stories included giants, hideous creatures, ghosts, beings from the spirit world, witches and many others. These creatures have haunted various corners of North America for thousands of years. The stories have been handed down from generation to generation. Some stories are amusing, while others are meant to be a terrifying lesson in life and contain eerie details and gruesome facts that will make your skin crawl. The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Many are about ghosts and their interaction with the living, some evil in nature while others appear quite normal. They teach a lesson that the dead don’t automatically become ghosts. Many of the stories give a brief hint to an afterlife. While some ghosts go about their everyday lives in spirit form, and others attempt to come back from the other side. Some come back for revenge on the living.

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. This book shows a wide landscape of different tribes and hopefully presents a true look at these beliefs. With this book you will understand the Native American people a little better and 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.

Native American history like others in history was scattered with stories of war. Whether it be the fighting of other tribes or conflicts with white settlers, their history was filled with bloodshed. In the days before the arrival of guns, battles could last days, and casualties could number in the hundreds. While eastern Indians fought almost exclusively to achieve retribution, southwestern Indians clashed with their neighbors both to avenge previous wrongs and to loot them of material possessions. In time tribal Warfare became more individualistic and therefore less bloody. It was more of an opportunity for young boys to acquire respect through demonstrations of courage. It became more honorable for a warrior to make contact with his enemy (count “coup") or steal his horse than to kill him. In This book is a collection of war related stories and others that create a history of the North American Indians. While the stories are sometimes graphic and contain much killing, they depict a true vision of history. Among the stories included in the collection are: The Origin of Medicine, The Warlike Seven, The Warrior of High Cliff, Warriors of the Rainbow, The War Medicine, The False Warriors of Chilhowee, The Last Shawano Invasion, The Shawano Wars, Hatcinoñdoñ’s Escape from The Cherokee, Escape of The Seneca Boys, Two War Trails, The Death of Head Chief and Young Mule, A War Between the Alabama And the Choctaw, War between Senecas and Cherokees, The Legend of the Apache Tear, Origin of the Sacred Arrow, A Widow’s Revenge, The First War, and many more.

A GREAT READ FOR KIDS! In 1891, the first buffalo was purchased for Golden Gate Park, Congress created the U.S. Courts of Appeals, the first woman was admitted to Yale University, American Express issued the first Travellers Checks, Thomas Edison patented the motion picture camera, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow published The Song of Hiawatha. It was also the year that Folk Lore and Legends of the North American Indianwas first published by J.B. Lippincott. Folk Lore and Legends of the North American Indian is an exquisite compilation of North American Indian myths and legends as they existed in the late 1880s and early 1890s. These are the stories that were passed from mouth to mouth, teaching stories to help young Native Americans navigate through the uncertain journey of life that lay ahead. J.B. Lippincott gathered the stories from letters transported to him via the recently completed Transcontinental Pacific Railroad. These stories should not become just another page in the ever-increasing forest of the internet; they should not be accessible only with the use of electronic devices. All Americans are invited, especially Native Americans, to keep a copy of this sliver of their history in their bookshelves for their children and their children's children to read and treasure for years to come. This book has been especially republished to raise funds for the American Indian Education Fund, benefitting the education of Native Americans across the United States of America.
