|LINKS to Native American Indian Stories, Storytellers Anecdotes, Fables, Legends, Tales, Myths and Mythology:
"Our stories were us, what we knew, where we came from and where we were going. They were told to remind us of our responsibility, to instruct, and to entertain. There were stories of the Creation, our travels, our laws. There were legends of hard-fought battles, funny anecdotes - some from the smokehouse, some from the trickster - and there were scary stories to remind us of danger, spiritual and otherwise. Stories were our life and they still are." -Larry Hill, Seneca: WEBSITE indigenouspeople.net.
