Native Americans used games, myths, dance, and impersonation to teach the children of their history and ways of life. They did not write down or record their history, so we have to find out about their history in other ways. Many oral histories were lost when European explorers and settlers came to the Americas. With them, they brought disease. The People became ill with smallpox and other illnesses. Many died. Much was lost.
Through storytelling, the rich history of the Native American tribes is alive and well today. It has been shared and preserved and still pays tribute to fallen heroes of the past. It is through these glimpses into the past, and these stories much like the ones that are contained in this book, that you can see what a proud heritage they possess and how in tune with the Earth Native Americans really are.
In this book you will find a collection of some of the best stories which are suitable for children of young ages and adults as well. These stories are meant to teach, inform and entertain.
