Description

Before the printing press dominated the world of formal communications, families, communities, and cultures relied on the oral tradition to pass along revered knowledge. Valued cultural content, particularly spiritual and historical beliefs and practices, was transmitted through legends and stories shared between generations by acknowledged storytellers and Elders. This practice was very much the case with Indigenous communities throughout North America. Represented here are legends from many Native groups, including Sioux, Cree, Hopi, Haida, Iroquois, Creek, Dakota, and others.
