The Droll Child is a unique and absorbing Native American mythic fantasy novella. And although it is a mythic fantasy tale and not in any sense a historical account of events, its conception is rooted in the scattering of people groups following the Noachian Flood and the Tower of Babel. In this engaging Native American mythic fantasy, Little Bear questions his grandfather, Dark Scar, about his heritage. The old man tells the boy the story of the droll child, a story of societal erosion, treachery, misuse of power, and yet a story of great bravery, and adventure. Snarling Wolf and Morning Star give birth to a dread droll child, and the evil spirit seer, Yellow Fang, determines that the droll child must die. However, the child is saved by the mythical White Lobo. Yellow Fang is determined to hunt down and destroy the child lest he overthrow the traditions of spirit seer controlled tribal life. There are those who would throw out the whole of Native American culture because it is not Christian. But then, our modern American culture is not Christian. The Droll Child shows an appreciation for native culture while recognizing where and how culture is inclined to stray from truth. This story is not about native culture per se. It is about every culture, ours included. As I look at anthropological history I see a pattern of mankind warping truth into error, and God sending voices to call people back to the truth as set forth in the word of God. This is a classic story of good versus evil, but told from a Paleoindian perspective.It is surmised that those native to the Americas migrated from Eurasia by way of a land bridge that is thought to have connected what is now Russia with Alaska. The early Paleoindians are presumed to have migrated southward from Alaska disseminating throughout North, Central, and South America. The Droll Child is a Paleoindian fantasy or myth
